I think you are right. thanks for your valuable message.
Why worry? Your files are on other sites so if someone wants them, they'll need to buy them there.
At one time iS would likely  have rejected any font you didn't design yourself, and more recently, they'd have rejected what you described as being "too simplistic". At the low selling rate there nowadays, they can't pay for detailed inspection so probably just tell inspectors just to reject quotations - they can't afford inspector time for research.
Finally, back in the day, I had a file rejected for having the name of the town visible. It was really small, but I had to remove it (presumably editorial). I questioned it on the forum and was told to my astonishment that the town name might be copyrighted. I couldn't imagine such a scenario, and anyway the town has had that name since at least the 11th century. But blanket rejections on town names.

Just move on.

Did you use the word 'logo' as keyword, title, description?

''The iStock Content Licensing Agreement specifically prohibits clients from using our illustrations as logos (See section 3b: Restricted Uses: No use in Trademark or Logos). Describing your illustration as a logo is extremely misleading for clients as they are not allowed to use iStock illustrations as logos or trademarks. As such, if you use the word logo in your illustration (for example, you type Logo Template as placeholder text), or in your metadata (keywords, description, or title), your file will be declined. This information is also covered in our comprehensive Contributor FAQs site.''

Also

''Read the license that came with your font to ensure it can be used commercially (i.e. sold as a Royalty Free stock illustration). As per our ASA (Artists Supply Agreement), you are responsible for ensuring your submissions dont contain any legal issues. As such, you will need to check the font license to ensure its OK to use it commercially. When in doubt, please contact the font creator or type foundry for clarification.''

And

''All text must be converted to outlines. This is because clients likely dont have the same fonts as you, so editable text boxes in your le will default to a system font (such as Courier). In order to ensure clients are receiving the exact same file they saw on iStock you must convert all your text to outlines. To do this in Adobe Illustrator, just click on your text and go to Type > Create Outlines.''
thanks but I never use the word logo email even i don't use the name of the philosophers as - cite where the quote comes from. for example 'aristotle'.

I create some quotes lettering illustration and upload them on several agency and they are accepted on every stock agency. but istock rejected my vector for copyright and trademark issue. how it is possible when I am using perfect font. and quotes are before 1920. they are famous ancient philosophical quotes before 1920. so how there is any copyrigh or trademark problem. if someone have some knowledge about that please describe it. thanks.

Do you have a link with an example of image you are talking about? Like a link from a different stock website that accepted it? Maybe the quotation is not the copyright issue, but another element in your design.
I don't use another additional elements just a simple font isolated on white background.

it seems impossible when a quotation/saying/short phrase from the  ancient philosophers or from their books which is 18th or 19th century old for example aristotle and William Shakespeare quotes.  how it is possible to get copyright and trademark rejections with that. although the validity of and copyright protection is maximum 70 years. this case is could not be able to understand. otherwise thanks for your comment here.

Why would an agency want to offer anything that is not copyrighted, anybody can copy it.
you mean they are not accepting my files because andbody can re make that by using same quote.

thanks for your comment. but in this case I only use free for commercial use fonts. and I have suitable licence and font author's permission too.
As always, unnonimus is slightly correct... but mainly completely wrong.
  "There are some very limited cases where the Office may register some types of typeface,
typefont, lettering, or calligraphy. " to quote from his source.  The font used by the London Underground being one example.

the fonts are definitely not copy protected in the US. neither are short phrases.

"Works Not Protected by Copyright"

- Names, titles, and short phrases
- Typeface, fonts, and lettering

what... ancient philosophical quote before 1920 by ancient philosophers as aristotle and William Shakespeare could be copyrighted or trademark.. please explain how it is  possible.

Yes, it could be the quote itself.. I have never seen any font rejection unless you try to sell it as the font itself.

I am using free fonts which allows me to use them commercially and I have licence and also font author's permission to use it for stock photography websites. but when I make some philosophical quote poster vector designs and submit to istock then they all rejected by legal copyright/trademark issue. so is there any solution for this problem. thanks
