Warning letter,copyright infringement, declaration of discontinuance, what to do?

What to do, if you received a warning letter reguarding an asserted Copyright infringement? 

The german "Urheberrecht" is much narrower than the comparable laws in other countrys. 

You should react. To do nothing isn´t the right reaction.  

Therefor you should assign a lawyer: 

1. Declaration of discontinuance
Do not sign the declaration of discontinuance. At least you have to modifie it. In many cases, reguarding a foreigner, it could be, that you don´t have to do it at all. 

2. Payment
There are, depending on the case, many possibilities to reduce the payment or to avoid it at all.
