I have a question regarding "Vicarious Infringement".
I have a blog which discusses laser hair replacement - I won't put the URL up for fear of being accused of advertising.
Anyway, in all my blog posts, I have google ads running at the top of every one.
Yesterday, I received an email from some solictors claiming "Vicarious Infringement" on the blog post.
In the blog post, and in the blog tags, they claim, are trademarked words, one of which made my blog rank on page one (position 10) in google.
In viewing the blog post, my page obviously shows a set of google ads. The solictors claim that I am trying to decieve my visitors, when simply, all I have is a page that contains these words and shows relevent ads.
Upon notification from the solicitors, I immeadiately removed the page and requested that google remove it from there index.
But is also seems that they want to charge me over £2000 to cover the legal costs of there client. The whole site has only made £25 in its entire life.
Any one else experience this sort of thing before?
