I developed a site for a company about a year ago. Site got live, I got the payment.
After I finished the project I had the project listed on my portfolio, also company on my client page.
Then today I got an email from the client which is this(company name X'd):
Please remove all content, and meta-data, related to XXXXXXX from your website and refrain from utilizing anything associated with XXXXXX to advertise your business from this point on.
I have full protection of my intellectual property and will take legal action in the event that you do not take this notice seriously. However, I would rather not go that route.
Note that I got this complain from him after a year I had that project listed on my site. Also we had a signed agreement which does not mention that I cannot list the work on my portfolio.
During the phone call today we sort of had a heated conversation. I explained to him he cannot ask me not to list the work I did. And I refused to take it down. He also mentioned that when people search for his Website my page shows #1 on Google. I guess which is his major concern.
After the phone call I got another email from him specifying he is getting this matter at his lawyer's office.
I could remove it to avoid the hassle. However I feel like I should not, if its allowed by law.
