Question about signage

In researching why my images of a public sign for a national park were rejected, I found that signs aren't allowed, due to intellectual property rights. I get that's the rule, now that I looked after the fact. However, if you search this sign to buy, about 50% are listed as editorial but 50% are not. None of them I found are in Winter so mine would be unique. The question comes because before I took the photos, I looked in the "buy" asset area (searched "Yellowstone Park sign") and found all the photos of the various signage available to purchase and that none were in Winter. Had I seen no photos at all, or all listed as editorial, I would not have even made the trip to take the photos (just 3 hours away), but that was not the case. No other signs or logos were present and the one that had a person in it was accompanied by a model release for her.

 

Why are some public sign photos allowed and some are not, is my question (referencing a Yellowstone National Park sign)? That's the answer I didn't find while researching (ie, "it's only allowed if...").

Not sure. Maybe they obtained the appropriate special use permits as per the quote below (which applies to video, stills, and sound recordings):

 

"A special use permit is required for any individual, business, or organization (including nonprofit groups and educational institutions) filming for a market audience or receiving compensation associated with footage or recordings made in the park."

This is one of the frustrating inconsistencies of submitting stock photography - some Moderators will approve it, others will reject it. Unfortunately, there's no way to dispute the findings of a Moderator. You can try re-editing slightly and submitting it again, but if it gets rejected again, just move on. I certainly wouldn't drive 3 hours to photograph it again with no guarantee that it will be accepted. There also seems to be plenty of other choices for Buyers with the existing inventory in the database, both Editorial and commercial.

Hello,

Personally, I wouldn't submit anything that may have a question mark in its acceptance. IP is a minefield, so anything that could relate to this, I leave - including people in the photo - unless I can get a model release from them.
