I grabbed a photo of a Castle from the internet and got this email:

Section 101 et seq. and could be liable for statutory damages as high as $150,000 as set forth in Section 504(c)(2).
Such an Artist, uh? This is what I call a copyrighted mind ! Well, I have to thank this person. His/her attitude made me search for another illustration of a castle - but not any castle. I deliberately searched for the same castle, and guess what? I ended up finding a better work, from an artist who is more interested in spread the art than trying to make a profit by threatening people. Check it out!
Yes, the Internet is a vast world... wide... web. Some people should just stay away from it.
