  1. I am just looking to double check that except for rare specific buildings no property release is needed for landscape type pictures of houses/towns/villages. I have taken a few pictures from high places looking out over towns - you have churches houses roofs streets etc. There are also visible but tiny cars, posters etc.
  2. I have a couple of questions about property releases for buildings. If you take a photo of part of a city – from a tower, for instance – would you need a release for every qualifying/recognizable building in the photo? Or if in a landscape photo there's a lighthouse in the distance? (This may be a stupid question. In any case.) Do you need a release for photos of buildings that have been demolished after the photos were taken?
  3. Hi, I would like to know what exactly it means to state if there are property or buildings or logos or people in a shot and if they are recognizable for the purposes of avoiding copyright infringement. I have some photos that have buildings in the distance, would they qualify for recognizable property in the shot? What if I were photographing a cityscape? Would I then need to make such a shot only available for book and magazine publishing? Crowd scenes, would they qualify for books and magazines but not commercial means? If I had a portion of an object where the logo didn't show but the brand could be recognised by the shape of the object, would this type of shot be only suitable for magazine and book publishing? If I took photos in the underground (subway) and of museums and statues in the street and public buildings, which categories would these qualify under: commercial or books and magazines? I'm a bit frustrated because I would like to avoid being overcautious yet I don't know what I would be liable for were I to make a mistake inadvertedly. Thank you for your help.
  4. I've read about property releases in the forum and the Alamy contributor pages, but still a bit confused about this. I've seen photos like this skyline that are listed as RF, but I assume property releases were not obtained for all buildings pictured. I have many photos with buildings in them, but no property releases. Can I upload them and mark them as not containing property that needs to be released for commercial use, and select RF?
  5. Hi, I'm completely new to Alamy or selling photographs online and I just have a legal question which confuses me a bit: In addition to others, I have a lot of nice pictures that were taken from public streets but feature recognizable buildings in the background (for example from the Vegas strip. Pics that show some of the hotels in the background, day or night) Also cityscape views taken from my room that show a number of the hotels, but from a far distance. One can read the hotel logos (such as "Caesar's Palace," "Bally's" etc, but, again, it's at a distance, no real details of the hotels themselves.) Can such pictures be sold, or would I need permission from every single hotel in the shot? What if the shot shows one entire hotel (Bellagio with fountains in foreground, for example.) I could understand if it is for commercial use, such as someone using the pictures for T-shirts, mugs etc, but what if someone writes a blog or news article about Vegas and just needs a pic to accompany the story? There are plenty of street shots in newspapers, I can't imagine that the photographer would need permission from absolutely everyone and everything in the picture in such instances, they just need a nice shot of the place they are writing about. Could I specify it's for newspaper use only and still submit the picture? What if there is a movie poster or product such as a soft drink in a picture? Do I need permission from all of those companies as well, even if it's not for commercial use? Sorry if that's a dumb question, but it just confuses me, because it would seem that most bloggers/newspapers have more use for shots of hotels/landmarks/cityscapes than they do for the more artistic ones, and they have to get these shots from somewhere. If Alamy may not be the right place to sell those kinds of pictures, is there another site that does? What about sites that sell cell phone pics, are they less stringent about this? I may not be able to use Stockimo, since I don't have an I-phone. BTW, these pics would not have recognizable people in it, just wondering about the buildings. Thanks for any clarification!
