Hi everyone,

I'm totally new to being a stock contributor and have multple questions one is about the Property Release forum. What I upload the most are old historic stuctures that are recognizable landmarks, local historic sites for example. The problem is I don't know how I'd go about getting a property release forum signed. Also a lot of what I'm currently uploading are from my archives dating back a few years. What's your suggestion when you can't upload editorial content. Like I said, I'm just starting on this and want to make sure I'm doing it right.

Usually structures that are older than 50yrs are ok. Also permanent artwork, such as statues are ok. Some older structures have restrictions. Such as the Eifel Tower at night. Here the lighting is protected. Newer buildings that are the main subject, this is at the reviewers descretion, may  have their design protected and cannot be published.

All trademark names, logos, car licenseplates, identifiable markings and people are taboo. They all require releases.

It depends on the building.  Some very old buildings like Radio City Music Hall in New York City are protected and cannot be accepted for commercial use under any circumstances. 

 

For more about restricted structures, see the chart below.

If you think you need a property release, you probably need one. The other way is not always true… But you can always upload.

If I have multiple versions of a building or public space or public art and I'm not sure whether a Property Release is required, I upload just one and wait and see what happens... If it's rejected, then I don't bother uploading the others.

That's what I often do as well. While human error is possible, I always assume that Adobe Stock reviewers know more than me about specific buildings/settings and make a decision in good faith, so if it's rejected, it's for good reason and I just move on to other subjects.

By @MNiessenPhoto

This is a good approach.

 

Please note also that moderators refuse at the slightest doubts. Even if there is no known problem ahead, they tend to be on the safe side. This said, I've added some nice old castles to my portfolio. So, it is possible to shoot historic buildings (outside!) and get accepted. Sales is a different side, I do not think that one of my castles has been sold until now… :-D.
