This image was rejected for potentially infringes on intellectual property rights.
Maybe it could have other kind of problems but were is "potentially infringes on intellectual property rights"?

Thank you in advance.

Are there any copyrighted logos in the image?

I bet it is the design elements on the pavement.

If it was that strict with the design we wouldn't have beem allowed to submit all that architecture and street views for commercial usage...
Maybe they hit the wrong reason and meant the trademark because of all the cars?

SS is truly insane with some of the reasons they deny photos. I've had photos accepted by other agencies no problem, then for some reason SS says no thanks. Even editorial content! Bit disappointing to be honest.

I just had one refused for the title not being in English or being too long...it was a picture of the Derbyshire dales....titled Derbyshire dales.

I can only think it was someone who has never heard of Derbyshire...but to tell me Derbyshire is not English.....grrrr

Well we can't tell for sure without a full resolution sample.  If it is a 40MP image you might be able to pick things out at 200%. (I'm reaching maybe!)

I would imagine the problem is not with the word Derbyshire but the word dales.     That is more of a British term.  If you submitted a photo of a truck and called it a lorrie, I'm sure you would get the same response.   Try resubmitting with Derbyshire Valley and see what happens.  Maybe your reviewer has never travelled too far.

LMAO, the first problem is that some ss reviewers have poor eyesight
then it was the problem with reviewers not have calibrated monitors
now, it's about hiring illiterate reviewers... LMAO

lorry (truck) , dale , taxi (cab), kati, okra (lady's fingers) ...whatever, ... even wanker (m*$t*b*****r)... is still English

you 'd think with that office with perks they would provide him/her with a dictionary
or at least the twit could have easily googled to find out if it was in fact an English

LOL last time I checked, the Americans were not speaking English before the Brits came over ...
even a yankee or a southerner would know the word dale or lorry.
next thing we know, even  timbuktu, leprechaun , kowtow , sahara, even etc..would be considered "not English"

I'm actually hearing 'dale' for the first time here. I always just thought it was a name.

The United States and Britain, two countries separated by a common language.

you surely heard the song that soldiers sang ...

"Over hill, over dale,
As we hit the dusty trail,
And the caissons go rolling along". ...

or the christmas song

"From everywhere, filling the air
Oh!, how they pound, raising the sound
O'er hill and dale, telling their tale"

sung by american pop
duo Carpenters

................ still, my point isn't that I expect ss reviewers to be literate and know every word in the Webster's,  but that person should at least be intelligent enough to  google the word
and just not to assume any word that does not sound like English is not English.
in fact, many words of locations, etc.. are not English

Sadly, I suspect they're paid peanuts on piece work, and it wouldn't be sustainble to Google everything that was suspect.
At most/all 'generalist' agencies, not just SS.

I think the ACS is right. I have had rejected images by SS, just for one Chinese writing on the vase at the image background. They demanded the translation to be accepted. I ignored because other sites accepted the same images. When the SS refused my images even though the possibility of reupload, I just ignore when the other sites accepted. I don't waste my time with nonsense.

red sentence...   BRAVO!  the most insightful comment ever re. ss rejections .
the main issue is not whether your rejection(s) is/are justified
the main issue is , that behind all these mass-rejections, a scheme of how certain handful of
reviewers are abusing their positions . ie. double-dipping on re-submissions.

by doing what idesign say so correctly,  I don't waste my time with nonsense.
[/quote]... you end their game.
the more ppl do this, the sooner the review will get back to the old days of proper reviewing.

that being said, there are still a handful of excellent reviewers there in ss.

i know, because, when i do get rejections, i see them closely, and find the faults i missed.
,, but never with the 100% rejections; that is nonsense

I just got a bunch of nonsensical "title" rejections. Someone can't be bothered actually  looking because they want to go out and have fun this weekend.

hint here, ... make a note of the weekend and time of your submissions that usually get these nonsense. this is the shift of atilla. if you avoid that shift, you will get the proper reviewer(s)
and not waste time submitting during these attila shifts

if we all find those shifts to avoid, atilla will lose money for not being able to gang-reject our uploads.

Yes, I used to be able to avoid weekends, but now reviews are more sporadic and I can't predict when they'll be "looked at."

So right, Shelma. There is no recognizable rhyme or reason to reviews any more. It's a total cr*pshoot.

The insane will bang their heads against the wall in a futile effort to reason it out.

The sane will simply keep throwing spaghetti on that same wall to see if and when anything sticks.

Definitely they have one or more new vector reviewers the last couple of weeks. I have also had a lot of crazy rejections.

good 2 know that it 's not just the photo review that's plagued.
but i think it's not a handful of renegade mass-atilla, but more so that there is one person using
some kind of program to do his/her work.
.. some kind of macro based on histogram or pixel-movement.

i suspect this because only such a program can curate a batch of 10-100 images per 20 minute or so.
i actually timed the curation and found this cannot be humanly.

try it, one day or night , based on your time of rejections, you can see that from your emails of
results of your submission. you will find it's not being done by a person

Now ALL of my vectors are being rejected for varying ridiculous reasons, mostly "title," but one for "placement" because they don't like things to be symmetrical, I guess? Meanwhile, the site is flooded with new vectors in the same category that are similar to the ones that were rejected. Not traced, but clearly "inspired" by my images.

I'm trying very, very hard not to feel paranoid.

did you try writing "contact us" or twit oringer on his twitter site (directly)???
if you feel this is unjustified, do it with conviction . you be amazed how a simple direct email to the top ppl does wonders, as many times, they do not know what the floor level ppl are doing,
most of all the floor managers .

i once went all the way up to the top for an incident, not microstock, and i had the
great surprise when the region manager actually called me directly to resolve the issue.
next thing i knew, the floor was all wiped out of the culprits.

if enough contributors do this, the same can happen at ss. don't waste time on forums,
because i am sure oringer has no time for reading forums. it's like the army,
the dirty sgt is the one who is dirty, and the major hears nothing because he thinks the sgt is
doing the job well.

Don't even try to understand the rejection criteria.  I gave up on it long ago.  Just resubmit images like this and hope for the best  Or  clone out the cars.

All These random rejection comments are making me nervous about uploading my portfolio, guess we'll see what happens in a month!
