Checked all the guidelines before submitting this image, and didn't believe generic Christmas ornament crossed any lines. Uploaded with the following description : Public display of generic, colourful, festive St Nicholas and Christmas tree ornaments on display in a bazaar. Kotor, Montenegro.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Greetings Stephen W Robinson, I will send you to the stock contributors guide to study the various releases required by Adobe.

  Property release and protection guidelines for Adobe Stock should give you a clearer understanding of what is required. Known image restrictions will give you a more comprehensive knowledge of what is not accepted, and with other's, what composition is accepted.

Thank you for taking the time to reply,

I don't get exorcised about my submissions... life's too short, and there are always better things to do with time.

I'd already read through the guidelines prior submission and felt it was well within the criteria and did not appear in any of the exclusion lists.

Shame tho' that's another moderator off my Christmas card list.

I suppose, the moderator recognized some unique artwork in your picture. Even mass fabricated figures may be protected by (c) and are unusable for stock images. This would be probably different if the figures would not be the main motive. Like some generic item and one or two of your figures as decoration. Please keep in mind that moderators can only guess that the figures are protected either as a trademark or under (c) law.

Here you fall clearly under Adobe’s (and others) « no risk » policy.

Thanks for taking the time to reply,

I'd checked through the protocols before submission, and it appeared to be acceptable, and wasn't on  any exclusion list.

I won't lose any sleep over it, it pays not to take yourself too seriously.

Oh, sometimes you get such pictures through, sometimes they get refused. And if you submit to different providers, it may well be, that a different one will accept.

No problem with that. It's the "general" use that poses problems not the picture in itself.

I also do not see this as a big problem generally with this picture and I suppose that different stock providers will accept it.

The major problem here would be if someone manufacturing such figures would use the picture to promote his work.
