Did you receive a demand letter as a result of an alleged copyright infringement from Higbee & Associates?

These demands are serious matters that are dangerous to ignore. US Copyright Law provides big penalties, even when you did not profit from your use of the image or you thought it was free. According to government records, Higbee & Associates is quick to file law suits (See Info Below).  A judge recently ordered a person who used one image to pay Higbee’s client $48,000 (see court document).

That being said, there are often ways to fight back and challenge the demands. Fighting back can often result in you paying less than demanded or nothing at all if you have a license or valid defense.
