This image of a seagull got rejected for beeing Intellectual Property Violation. It has a number tag on its foot, but that not really a logo, or a company. Soooo...I have no idea why this is rejected. Do you have any ideas? The rejections seems very random....
The number tag makes it identifiable, therefore being rejected. Anything that can be identified will most likely be rejected under property violations.
Then its kind of funny that today this image DID get aproved:
And so the plot thickens
Different reviewers have different ideas, I expect.
Maybe it was submitted with the correct paperwork? (Seagull's owner approval)
Or maybe the seagull belongs to the photographer
Did you see post nr 3?
No, I didn't. I was just trying to understand why one would be accepted and not the other.
I had one like this. It was a alligator in the wild. I couldn't figure how it could be an Intellectual Property Violation. I was talking to a fellow photographer about it and he suggested it just may be so close to someone else photo, one that may have been purchased already that it may be considered a copy of the other photo. I don't know, sounds as reasonable as anything. Maybe that's why the second was accepted. What do you think?
