Hello!

Can anybody advise me in the following matter. 

There is a list of restrictions regarding images, but what about (especially) buildings that are recognizable but not on a list? Can I upload pictures of them to the stock?

Hello oneandonlytruemeeen, One of the most important and enriching things you can do as a photographer and Adobe Stock Contributor is to automatically obtain your releases - model, places, building and objects owned by someone else. The copyright laws just became more in demand than ever. All photographers are responsible for supplying them for their own commercial use and for commercial sale in stock galleries. 

Adobe has put together the go-to guide on these things. I will give you the link. It is up to you to get to know it and answer your questions as you go. Be ready - Adobe is quite strict on these. Regards, JH

Posted by staff member Mat Hayward:

 

"An architecture/building would also fall in the "foggy" category also.  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. To the extent of the strictness and tightness of the reviews, I do not think any get past the reviewers.

 

However, based on the phrase "for your own protection" used in other discussions I've read, it can be interpreted as the contributor would be included for litigation.  I hope your questions, and curiosity was satisfactorily addressed."

Dear joanh22203655, thank you very much for an answer. I have went through this set of information. It looks like in case of hesitation it is alway better to ask for property release first then to gues. It is a "foggy" category after all.

It's no foggy category at all. But it's rarly understood. But your assumption is correct: in case of doubt ask for a property release.

Greetings, The "quote posted by staff member Mat Haywood included his word "foggy and most often

is referred to unclear.  Abambo's "It's no foggy category at all. But it's rarely understood." I always go with Mat Haywood in these vague areas.  Best always. JH

If it is uncertain, then Adobe are going to protect themselves from legal action, because they are much more likely to be sued than you are; courts don't give "benefit of the doubt". So indeed, protect yourself: if there is a human being or human construction, get a release.
