Find a local intellectual property attorney and ask them for a 15 minute consultation to discuss a complaint someone has filed against you. I know we are encouraged not to give the answer in this forum, but sometimes it is the right answer. You do not want to publish what you have or have not done to have this complaint filed, but that information would be very important to evaluating how to proceed. It would also be important to know whether the complaint was a straight copyright infringement complaint or something related to broadcasting rights. And what are they offering to settle as they may be offering something that is entirely inappropriate. If you are being sued, do not fool around with free advice online from individuals who do not have the details of your situation.

Good luck,

Todd

Intellectual Property
The legal system recognizes the rights of people and companies that invent and create unique works, granting them ownership of those tangible and intangible assets through a number of intellectual property laws. Intellection property, or IP, includes patents, trademarks, copyright, trade dress and trade secrets. Intellectual property attorneys work with businesses and individuals (including inventors, writers, composers, artists and designers) to help protect these intellectual assets. IP lawyers and law firms can assist with taking initial steps to protect assets, while also working with clients to license items and to protect assets that are plagiarized, infringed and/or misappropriated.
