Hi, I'm dealing with the same issue. Here are some of my photos that were rejected for the same reason or technical, which makes no sense. There are so many others similar and published here.
Thanks for your feedback!

Radio City Music Hall is definitely protected. You cannot use it commercially. Sorry.
HINT: Crop & straighten images before submitting.
You cannot use "there are similar pictures" to prove you don't need a release. Because the similar pictures might actually HAVE releases, you can't tell. Releases, and a knowledge of IP law, are a basic part of the photographer's job, pain as they are. You'd expect other people to respect YOUR IP after all.
Thank you! I understand. Maybe that's the type of information that needs to be added to each Stock photo.
You post different pictures that have very strong technical problems (not sharp, white balance, artefacts etc. All pictures taken in a park need probably a property release, pictures with recognizable people in need model releases, logos and other elements like with the croissant picture are in violation with the ip rights. The chocolate is not sharp and has probably also a noise problem. The city hall in addition to have ip rights problems is really technically flawed. People in the picture need to have model releases. The park image needs at least model releases if not a property release, I did not look into technical problems. Pier 39 may have ip problems and also technical problems: noise, animals out of focus... The carussel is not sharp, exposure is not correct, people need to submit model releases, the design may be ip protected. The snow picture has at least a white balance problem. The speed limit sign is not ip protected.
For technical problems: look at your picture at 100% and/or 200% magnification for detecting noise, sharpness and/or artefacts. Images need to be crisp sharp (point of interest!) and flawless to be accepted.

Thank you so much for your replay and the links. I am new and the liks are helpful. As far as I know, Pier 39 is not IP protected.
I have absolutly no idea about Pier 39, but moderators may throw out the picture by precaution, if the SUSPECT IP violation. You didn't tell which ones got the IP violation and which ones got the technical reason. And both may apply...
I see. Pier 39 issue was IP.
A different argument: not all protected items are on the list of known restrictions. But if you edit out the reference "Pier 39" and other signs it will not be refused probably with an IP refusal.
Thank you Nanacy! Got it.
