Post: Did a banner exchange, now Getty is fining me?
Posted by Mike A on 12/12/08
Hoping for some insight. I did a banner exchange with a
company...the very common, if I put their banner on my
site, they will allow me to be in their directory. I did
this thinking...a little exposure, great! Well, not so
great, I got a registered letter from Getty Images saying
they found an image on my site that wasn't licensed to me.
Well the image in question was the one used on the banner
that right on the banner said the other companies name. Am
I really liable in this instance? BTW, of course, the
company I did the exchange with is no answering my emails
and can't seem to find a phone number for them.
