|Comment||TY Mr. Morgan for your prompt response and answer. Given I've created and published at least 1000+ public domain internet safety images over the last 4 years and always made sure their parts were not owned, Gallery Stock is the first to send a $900 bill followed by a verbal refusal to send a DMCA Takedown Notice. What is frustrating is that the image was removed within hours of their email, was not used for commercial purposes and was de-indexed in Google Webmaster Tools. They said if they gave me a break, they'd have to do the same for everyone. I'll will pass your suggestion on to the site owners as it supports what I had suspected. What is intriguing to my forensic psychologist mind is I wonder if they don't send DMCA Takedown Notices or watermark and identify their images by design to generate additional revenue. Thank you again for your insight and I'll be sure to let you know the outcome. Respectfully, Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. NYS Licensed Psychologist iPredator Inc. https://www.ipredator.co/|
