My editorial Disney photo of space ship earth @ Epcot gets rejected due to non-licensable content. When I do a keyword search with the SS keyword tool, editorial photos show up. Im confused, can someone clarify for me?

It never matters what has been approved before. That said, unless Disney now has the legal right to forbid all licensing, you likely just got a bad reviewer. Have you tried resubmitting? Its possible Disney has changed the legalities.

Disney are very litigious Shutterstock are very risk averse  so its likely that their rules have tightened. Whether legally they are in the right is academic - their site their rules.

No havent tried resubmitting. Testing the waters on Disney shots. SS is the only one that rejected. Passed on Alamy, DT, ESP

I can't comment on DT or ESP, but I can say that Alamy do not inspect images on upload for possible intellectual property issues. They only inspect for technical quality and regard other aspects of the upload (captions, keywords, releases) as the responsibility of the contributor. Microstockers who are used to having their hands held by inspectors at other agencies should beware when uploading to Alamy and take care to ensure that they are not infringing model or property rights.

I see you are removing your Disney files from all sites, but I'm curious. When you said ESP what did you mean?
If you meant submitting to iStock via ESP, I'm surprised the images were accepted as they say, "All Disney buildings, installations, products, including characters, names, and its logo are protected. Imagery containing any protected property of Disney is unsuitable for commercial use.
Images of the above mentioned may be suitable as editorial content with permission from Disney."

Note that Alamy does not inspect for IP: that's our responsibility. It takes six months (180 days) for content to be removed from Alamy, but in the case of IP, you can ask CR to remove them faster if you give them all the relevant file numbers.

Ive heard about Disney's reputation to pursue infringements at any cost. That's one company you don't want to mess with. Yea Rinder - Ive heard about that one too - Disney employees searching online for any misuse of their brand and then taking the appropriate action. There was once a school that staged a parade featuring Disney characters. Unfortunately, Disney caught note of this and the school got in a lot of trouble.

Since Star Wars is now owned by Disney, I wonder if there are now restrictions on Star Wars imagery / merchandise etc used as stock.
