A: The question does not include the whole letter. Therefore, it is impossible to assess the situation. However, it appears that you might not have been sued yet. "What to do" is call an intellectual property lawyer who can seek to solve the problem. In many other cases, people unfamiliar with the system who tried to handle these situations by themselves got very bad results.
