I submitted a piece of AI-generated art a while back, and got my first communication regarding it today. I was informed that my submission is pending, subject to taking additional needed action. Specifically, I am told I must submit a model release.
The art is of a woman's head. It is photorealistic and does look like an actual person, but the person is completely imaginary. When submitting it, I checked the box signifiying that it was AI-generated. I also completed and uploaded a property release in my name.
Adobe's own guidelines state: "If the generative AI content was not based on a real person, but it visually appears to resemble a person, then you must submit a property release confirming that you have all property rights in the content."
I don't know what else I can do. Obviously, I can't get a model release from an imaginary person. And Adobe does have my property release as well as my acknowledgement that it is AI-generated art.
Are you certain that the property release is actually attached to the image? And is it filled out properly?
Did you include the reference image and did your description include “fake character created by generative AI” or similar?
