Icons Rejected for Intellectual Property Refusal

I have a vector icon set that's been rejected twice for "Intellectual Property Refusal". At first, I thought the circles on the credit card icon might look a little too much like the Mastercard logo. I edited them, but the file was rejected again at the end of last month.

 

This is made more frustrating since Adobe has been taking considerably longer to review submissions. So, before I edit that icon a third time, I want to make sure I'm not missing something. Is it another icon that's the issue, like the QR code? I can also list most of the keywords I've been using, too, although I don't know why that would be the problem.

I can't see an obvious IP refusal. So it's probably worth telling us both the subject and keywords in case there is accidental IP in there.  Not IP, but I am dubious of the QR code. I can't scan it with my phone, and that might annoy people. But if it were a random code, that might be worse and it might link to a business site - a disaster if someone dropped it on their own business site or posters. So I don't know how you made it, but it should generate it yourself and have a carefully chosen t

Wait! I have it. Your credit card has the mastercard logo. Definite IP. Mastercard’s new logo suggests a future where payment is digital - Vox

Thanks for the heads up on the QR code. I tested the link several times as I was putting the set together. It shouldn't link to anything. I'll try again without the circles on the credit card icon.

Your QR code shouldn't simply work! The QR code is, however, not IP related, except if it would point to a real site.

Who knows really. It might be the double circles in the credit card. It does resemble MC. Why not just put something fake there instead? Two letter 'C's? Maybe back to back?

Master Card credit cards are not allowed… and fall clearly under the IP regulations:

Delete the two circles. Put nothing in place.

To be on the safe side, I would remove barcode and QR code icons. 

There might be security concerns with those motifs.
