Image Copyright Infringement
We've had a bill through today from Getty Images, who have seen some images on our website that they believe are their copyright. They are demanding a settlement of #800 per image. The images were put on by our previous web dev. The new web dev didn't have any records to refer to, to verify the copyright permission of the images, so he's in a bit of a tight situation really. The boss has contacted the previous web dev and she says the she 'always kept copyright in mind' but didn't keep any record of any permission obtained.
What would be your next course of action? Has anyone experienced anything like this before?
