Account Reinstated - Trust the process

After 10 days my account was reinstated. The problem was images where the key words refer to the style of another "artist". In this case it was contemporary sci-fi images which possessed a HR Giger quality. Although US Copyright law does not explicitly protect ideas or styles, Adobe considers using artist's style keywording a violation of IP. I have no problem with this policy and will strive to strictly adhere to Adobe's guidelines.


I want others with banned accounts to be patient with the process of moderator review of deactivated accounts. I am grateful to be reinstated and so thankful I can remain a contributor to this great organization. 

I would suggest all contributors to review their keywords to insure they are not steering traffic to their assets on the merits of other artist name or implied mention of other artist's styles. Keyword your images as original works standing upon their own merit and you will be doing yourself a favor.

 

Again thanks to everyone's input and the Adobe Moderation team. Remember that there is hope.

This is good to hear. There has been a bit of hysteria here and in the Discord channel about blocked accounts, and this should reassure contributors that it is a fair process.

Now here's my current concern. I had lots of uploaded files in review that should be making there way through approval at this point in time. Wondering if they are gonna just sit there or if I should delete them and upload again so I don't lose weeks of waiting.

Keep them running, except if they have an IP problem…

The US Copyright law is not the only law that Adobe needs to follow. They also need to follow the Argentinian copyright law, the Mexican law, the German law, the Swiss law, the French law, the Mauritian law, the Japanese law, … You see the mess.
