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.

However, you will need a competent lawyer who is skilled at challenging these tactics. Do not trust the outcome of a serious legal matter to advice from bloggers who are there to give you bad advice for free in hopes of you paying for more advice when you get in deep legal trouble.

Find an attorneys who understand how to handle their tactics and who knows the nuances of copyright law.

Get in contact with a trained an experienced attorney who can get you the best result possible. Free advice that can help you possibly save thousands of dollars and possibly prevent legal nightmares.  See sample pricing charged by attorneys.   Pre-litigation negotiation only packages can start at $1,500.   Full service legal representation (after law suit is filed) can start at $9,500.  If you cannot afford an attorney, contact the legal aid society or county bar association to see if free or discount legal help is available.

  • Pricing is just for example.  Rates charged by attorney vary greatly.
