Copy right picture usage

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Ours is a small company and we have a website running for our company . Unfortunately our web designer used 2 small pictures from gettyimages.com  for our website . To be frank he was not that aware of  the copyrighted online pictures and  the consequences we will have to face if he would use it.
a week back we received a legal notice their lawyer  claiming 3,800 dollars . we immediately removed those pictures from our website.  still the notice says we have to settle the amount even after the removal of the pictures .

It is a big amount for our company. I am not going to use any copyrighted material hereafter and I will be careful with that matter But now   please experts  advice me how can i answer to this notice ? what i suppose to do with this legal notice ..
