I really need some advice...
I run an small online shop and I have inadvertently used another retailer's own product image, as it did look very similar to that provided by the manufacturer. This was a genuine mistake. I have made no sales of the product and it was displayed for only a small number of days.
The first I knew about it was when I received a letter from the retailer's Trademark Attorneys demanding that I remove the image and respond to a number of questions. I removed the image at once and sent a reply apologising.
I received a new letter today, saying the retailer accepts my apology but the Trademark Attorneys have sent me an invoice for £325 + VAT to pay for the retailer's legal costs.
Should I just pay this or is there something else I can do. I run the shop as a hobby and it doesn't really make any profits to speak of.
Thanks in advance.
