Anyway the email is as follows:
I am contacting you on behalf of Broadtrans Earthmoving. We ask that you immediately remove a video you have posted on You Tube that features our business truck and one of our workers. If you have not removed the video or responded to our email by Thursday 23rd February 2012, 4pm we will be taking legal action.
My draft response is as follows ..
In reference to your "Letter of Demand" dated February 22, 2012. My apologies for the delayed response but I thought it prudent to obtain appropriate advice before replying.
My understanding is that your demand has no legal basis under both common law and state and commonwealth legislation as the recording is made public and is by no means defamatory. Therefore I will be declining your demand. However if you are able to provide appropriate legal advice supported by legislation and/or case law supporting your "demand" I will be happy to reconsider my decision.
May I suggest however, that more appropriate and positive response would be to take appropriate steps to ensure your company and its employes acts in an appropriate and safe manner in future and thus avoids such recordings.
Seeking suggestions on how I can improve my response.
Thanks in advance
