I just had a bunch of clips rejected due to no model releases. It was water-skiing footage of a major event which is similar to a lot of my shoots where it would be considered editorial footage. I talso had a timelapse clip rejected due to no property release, again it should be considered editorial.

Here's the message: " Thanks for your upload but unfortunatelly we cannot take this clips because we no longer accept logos/brands/ads etc on main focus and without property release."

I understand where they are coming from due to the sheer volume of crap footage that people upload but there has to be some give when it comes to quality stuff. If this is the new way it'll mean blurring out every single logo, every face unless you have permission from everyone in it.

Anyone else experienced this yet?

On Pond5, prior to submitting, the uploader has to mention which clip is editorial into "Notes to curator" field - else gets rejected.
