Property Release Missing notices on public monuments

I'm getting frustrated with my submissions of very public monuments (ancient pyramids and temples in Egypt) being put on hold because Adobe wants Property Releases signed. First of all, I thought that ancient monuments that are visited by the public don't need property releases. I see numerous examples on the Adobe Stock site. Second, how in the world would any photographer EVER get a signed property release from the Egyptian Governement!?

FYI - some of my photos from the same temples in Egypt were accepted WITHOUT property releases!

You thought wrong.  Many ancient landmarks are protected either by private or public entities.

 

Images you see on Stock could be Editorial Use Only which is for non-commercial use. Check the license.

 

As a photographer,  you cannot assume everything you see is with no strings attached.  In most places, you can freely photograph what you see for personal use but you can't sell it commercially without permission (some fees may apply).

There's a world of difference between personal use and commercial use.   Deal with it appropriately.  Carry property and model releases with you when you travel.  Get signed permission whenever possible. 

 

Stock is a business.  Adobe must protect their interests as well as their customers from possible legal action. Releases also protect you if there is any question later.

These images belong to the Egyptian Government, therefore you will need a property release! The other images probably got accepted in error. Adobe Stock is also becoming a lot stricter, and are more careful these days about IP issues and model releases!
