Hereby we inform that we follow our copyright enforcement procedure to recover the fees associated with the use of our icons. So far we have filed an official DMCA Takedown Notice to your hosting provider.
If you have purchased the license, please let us know the order number at firstname.lastname@example.org in 3 days, otherwise we have to pass the case to our external counsel for further action.
Please note that further legal action may require you to cover the extra fees associated with recovering the payment.
Below is the copy of the original message we've sent you recently.
We have been made aware that your web page [URL,fallback=] displays icons from Icons8.com. The screenshot of the icons in question is [ScreenshotURL,fallback="stored in our database"].
Please accept this letter as official notification that you may be violating the law by infringing on our copyrights. I hereby request that you immediately purchase the license, as specified in the copyright laws, and ensure the user refrains from using or sharing with others unauthorized materials in the future (see 17 U.S.C. 512).
If you have purchased a license to display our icons legally, please provide us with your order number. If you do not respond by either providing your order number or purchasing a license, we intend to move forward with legal action against you for your copyright infringement.
Even if your infringement was unintentional or innocent up until now, you now have direct knowledge that you have been using our copyrights without a license. Therefore, not purchasing the license is willful and intentional copyright infringement.
Some infringers are willing to remove the icons to reduce the statutory damages, but it is not an acceptable resolution. The only possible resolution is your immediately providing us with your order number. In this case we drop the claim, otherwise we escalate the claim to our attorney.
Please send a prompt response indicating the actions you have taken to resolve this matter. Nothing in this letter shall serve as a waiver of any rights or remedies of Icons8, all of which are expressly reserved. If you need to contact me, my contact information is located at the bottom of this letter.
