Hi all,

One month ago I was contacted by someone on behalf of Primerica saying that I have infringed their copyright and also did some misleading and false accusations on my post.

I've reviewed the content, placed a disclaimer on that post, removed their logo from the post as well, and did some changes to the content to make it less "aggressive".

Today, I got an email from one attorney with the title "Primerica, Inc. v. Pedro" giving me a deadline to shut down the post and remove all content from my servers.

Have this happened to any of you?

What did you do?

What the outcomes?

Or.....
Should I just delete the post and place a 410 deleted content redirect + delete all images from the server?

Wish you all a great day!
Cheers
Pedro

Here's the story of what Kyle went through. The company is counting on you backing down. But if you decide to fight back, make sure all of your ducks are in a row, as Kyle discussed in the post.

One thing we have to figure out what fights are worth picking and fighting. Is it worth the drama.

If you have used assets logos or vectors in your original post, then there can be a case of copyright infringement.

For them to take action you must have rattled their cage, there are more than a few reveiws about this company. Many in a negative light.

Attorneys only act on instruction, they will get paid, sending that letter. You have made changes this will not alter the process that is in train.

In this case I would tend to use it as a learning experience, if we go after an online presence aggressively we kind of have to be prepared to make a stand. If the company is dogey then reviews will tend to express that.

Somtimes if you make a stand, the opposition will cave, it can be a case of who blinks first.

In this case because of the escalation I would let it go to fight another day. Just an opinion.

Thank you so much,

Taking into consideration that they are a big shark I should let it go and simply remove the content...

Lots of people use logos on their reviews to identify companies, seems that we should only use their logos if we do a positive review ;)

Thank you for your time

Cheers
