I have spent an inordinate amount of time getting property releases from companies who's logos or brands are in my images. Sometime the companies have been very cooperative about gving me the release. Some have taken a little more persistance. But whenver I submit an image that has a visible trademark or logo I have a release to go with it. The problem is those same images are being rejected for intellectual property. WTF??? What did I spend all that time and effort for to get the proper release only to have the image rejected for not having one!!! For instance, I have some images of my son holding a big steelhead that have been on a magazine cover. Great shot! He has an Abu Garcia cap on that I had him wear. I have a prpoerty release from Pure Fishing who owns the brands Berkley, Shakespeare, Fenwick, Rapala, Sufix, Pflueger, .... and Abui Garcia. That image and several simlair ones have been rejeced because of intellectual property. And yet one of them has been excepted. What kind of operation is Adobe running here? And what can I do to have my images excepted when I have the proper property release for the image.

Please share an image for which you believe you have complete IP releases. Sometimes a fresh set of eyes sees more IP.  Also, do your releases clearly relate to the specific product? Adobe aren't going to do brand ownership research.

Logos are a nogo, property release or not.

Your remarks are a bit confusing.

  • Excepted = not accepted.
  • Accepted = received and approved.

 

Accompanied by signed releases or not, logos are NOT accepted for commercial use.  Before submission, do completely remove any logos and trademarks from your images.  See below from the Stock Contributor User Guide.

I hope that clarifies Adobe Stock's policy.

A) email attachments do not work.

B) if you publish a property release here, edit out private information before uploading.

 

As said by me and @Nancy OShea: Images with logos don't get accepted, even if you have a property release for the logo.
