Complaint Description

Description

I had 2 images on my site that were not copyrighted via Image information. One picture of rice, and one of beans. This site what teaching people what to stock up on via FEMA instructions. I received a letter from Mr McCormick about trying to sue me for the use even though I removed the 2 images ASAP. Now they are harrassing me for $2,222.00.

Expected resolution details: Just leave me alone.
