   i couldn't understand this. if i a take a photo include people. can i send this photo for commercial without permission? 

You're welcome :)

The general rule is that if your photo includes identifiable people and/or property including trademarks,, you cannot sell it commercially without obtaining a release.

However, editorials don't need releases. Keep in mind that not all unreleased commercial images make for good editorial as they must "tell a story". SS has written extensively about this:

I think this image won't be accepted as commercial as it's someone's artwork. Just submit it as editorial. Nice image by the way!
