Hi,

 

whats the rules in regards to Royal Mail post boxes. I've got a few good old V R embossed post boxes. But I'm unsure if these kind of images would need a property release or are they classed as public domain etc.. 

 

I presume its probably editorial use only, But I can't find anything of any sense searching so thought I'd ask.

 

thanks in advance.

I usually mark them as RM.

+1. They still belong to the Queen.

I have different images down under both. But that's only because I used to list everything as RF and now list everything as RM.

Rightly or wrongly I list them as RF and have not had any adverse feedback.

Thanks, So technically either option is fine RF or RM. But RM would be the safest bet, But RF if you plan to list on other sites.

Strictly speaking they are property. However you are now allowed to list images with unreleased property as RF. This wasn't the case under the old MI. It's up to you to take the slight risk.

Under the new MI (with model and property releases tabs optional) I've noticed that if I do not complete these two optional tabs my RM images say no model or property release. So for RM images is there really a need (since the change) to complete these optional tabs unless you have releases?

No.

I optionaled a handful at the start of AIM because it was part of the routine, but I've pretty well stopped now.

How does the fact that the Royal Mail was privatised a few years ago affect this statement?

Thanks for that confirmation. I've in fact started to use it now when people are clearly part of the image and I want to state that number of people - something I always thought was its original purpose i.e. to assist buyers with selecting images with people in.  And doing like you do, I think, what I also like about the new AIM is that I no longer have to count all the specks of people in my images to confirm how many there are in order to get the image on sale as RM - I can instead just leave it at the default option of no model release.

Dunno, but they're still called 'Royal Mail'. Maybe the Windsors have been privatised? ;) :)

I dunno either. What I do know is that since they privatised the Royal Mail, we're all Losedors (except the geezers who nabbed up the shares at the silly low prices they sold it off for). As for the queues in the recently relocated main post office in my town - say no more.
