Hello,

 

some time ago I created a website with iWeb and one of it's templates. I replaced all but one of the templates placeholder images with my own images.

Recently I received a invoice by Getty Images (London) about 1300,-- Euros for using one of iWebs placeholder images.

 

I used the image in good faith on my webpage, because thats the whole pupose of iWeb, to create webpages with the templates. I'm even pretty sure, that I read somewhere in the manual that I can publish my website even if I left the template unchanged.

 

I've send an email to Apples copyright agent, but I just got generic answer pointing to the EULA.

 

But the question remains, am I allow to use the iWeb templates and images for a website or do I have to pay a copyright fee to whoever created the template??

 

Any help especially by Apple would be appreciated.

 

Regards,

Hauke
