Learn about using a cease and desist demand letter to request that an infringer stop using your artwork.
- [Instructor] The next response method we'll cover…is a cease and desist letter.…The name of this approach says it all.…Someone has infringed on your copyright…and you want them to cease and desist…all copyright infringement.…This is a good approach for all infringers,…small or large, it's legally enforceable,…clearly states consequence for non-action.…It demands a response they have to sign and return…back to you.…
And it's a good way to catch an infringer off guard.…Presenting your copyright registration certificate…with this letter will compound the serious tone it sets…and inform them you will not ignore this matter…and expect them to comply.…I use this method with those infringers…that ignore a reasonable email, to give them notice…that their non-action has escalated the matter…and they'll be held accountable if they continue to ignore…my claim to the copyright.…
