  • Video SNAFU

    I own a corporation in Canada and a US customer wants to sue us. When I first purchased the business a customer called and asked if he could use the videos on our website and edit out the company mentioned in the video. I asked the original owner if we owned the videos on our website and he said we did. So, I gave the customer permission to use them as he wanted. Within a few days I received a call from another very upset owner who originally paid and produced the video. I learned that she owned it and how it came to be. I apologized to her and she accepted. So I then asked the new customer to remove the video that he edited and he refused to do so. The original owner of the video then put a disclaimer on her website and mentioned that the original video was also on our website. Almost 5 yrs later he is sueing her for posting the disclaimer and because we are mentioned on her website, we will be included in the lawsuit. What are our liabilities in this situation and does he have to come to Canada to sue us? We are a very small company and this would force us to close. At this point, we can't even afford the $2000 retainer required by a lawyer.
    Please advise.
