Photo infringement law firms like Santa Ana-based Higbee & Associates (who refer to themselves as a "National Law Firm") have been in the photo infringement game for years, but recently I saw what was a new player (at least first time I have seen them or recall seeing them - CopyrightRecovery.net (appears to be a Florida organization).
According to their website:
"We will search and show you if your images are being used on the web without your consent.
Then, with your approval, we will begin our fight to get you paid for the infringement.

Copyright Recovery LLC keeps 40% of the net recovery of infringement settlement.
I have seen a letter from this company. You might think it is a law firm (as there is a lot of tough-talk settle or else language and apparently a contingency fee for their client) but it does not appear to be a law firm and the writer of the letter I reviewed did not indicate he was an attorney.
