Hi. I'm new to microstock. So I am still unsure how things work.

I just had a batch of photos rejected from SS due to "Contains potential trademark or copyright infringement" issues.

The photos were of gold coins laying on top of various charts (made and printed by me).

Which is more likely the reason they claiming copyright issues?

When you submit photos with your own designs (like the charts), do you make a note of that to the reviewers?

Thanks!

Probably the charts. Try resubmitting with an explanation that you drew them yourself.

Thanks. I'll resubmit them with my next batch with the proper explanation.

Thanks for the info, Ron. These were British Britannia which are not listed there. But it's good to know about the Canadian coins as I was planning on lending some to shoot.
