Hi everyone,

I received a "NO PERMISSION TO PHOTOGRAPH" message for the digital reproduction of my painting with the building, which is 100% my imagination. The painting is not based on a real landscape. LowRes image is attached.

How to deal with this problem? I have no direct contact with the moderators - they expect me to send a formally signed permission, which I don't actually need. Or do I have to give my own permission? it seems absurd. I would be very thankful for your help. V.

Of course you need to show a permission. How can Adobe guess this is from your imagination if you do not tell them? It is entirely normal to sign an IP release as both "artist" (photographer) and "owner" (painter): all artists submitting their own work are expected to do so.

Adobe's merely asking you for permission to sell your original artwork commercially, that's all.  It's pretty standard with all microstock agencies.  It ensures you own it 100% and that nobody else can claim ownership of it.

 

When you resubmit, include your signed IP release form and everything will be fine.

Waht do you think if  I send as a response (instead of requested permission) something like that:

I hereby declare that the buildings featured in the submitted image named “Windkraft aus dem Schwarzwald (Winter)” are a product of my imagination and bear no resemblance to the real world. The image of the buildings was created by hand and digitally inserted at selected point in the drawn landscape. For this reason, no tracing of the photograph of natural landscapes was undertaken in this image production.

Signature?

Thanks for the prompt reply! It really surprises me to be honest. I hope it only applies to people and property such as private homes. Actually, I have already completed all the formalities (from my side) with approval and signatures. I'm not an expert in this particular area of jurisprudence as copyrights etc., so the two signatures from the same person representing two sides of the agreement kinda defies logic. Sorry for my trivial comments.

Thanks a lot once more!

And of course thanks for the reply! v.
