Potential legal action in the case of a copyright breach

Cranes Direct has spent much time carefully creating this website and all the content that is featured on it. If it is clear that copyright has been breached, we reserve the right to pursue legal action. 

Our first point of action is to try and resolve the situation. We will contact any third parties that have breached copyright, usually through e-mail, requesting that the copyrighted content is removed from where it has been published. If the content is removed swiftly, we will take no further action.  

Failure to remove content, or if our request is declined, Cranes Direct reserve the right to begin legal action. This includes, but is not limited to, seeking an injunction to have the copyrighted material removed.

Cranes Direct would greatly appreciate any help that you can offer, and upon being contacted we would review the situation and take the necessary steps as listed above under ‘potential legal action in the case of a copyright breach’.
