Some company names and symbols are obviously logos, but what about things such as childrens clothing that has a knitted pattern on it such as the muppets for example, or toys that copy characters from TV programmes? Sorry if this has been covered before.

Characters from TV programmes are definitely copyrighted, for knitted patterns it depends on each case. Best way is to upload and see the result, cause hypothetical situations are hard to be discussed.

Thank you for the prompt reply Dudau. I think I might risk one for the assignment.

yes, try. Even if you are rejected, I don't think you risk anything.

If there is a text in the photo, that is not in English or other well-known languages, admins generally tend to reject because they can't be sure if it's a brand name or just a simple word like "restaurant".

For logos and images; if you try to upload a child's t-shirt with Mickey Mouse on it, it is definitely a copyright, even if the very little part is visible. Generally, try to get rid of every logo, and suspicious text. Most of the time, they don't add anything to the photo.

I have serious problems with sneakers, they always have huge logos on every side of them and it's very hard to clone it out.

Well, if you have reflections in the photo, check that for reflections of logo/serial numbers etc whatever. Sometimes I don't look at the reflection of the image and only clean up the main object.

Sounds stupid.

Another one that use to get me rejection was writing and logos on tires when submitting auto photos. They tend to blend right into the tire unless you look very closely.

If we talk about hidden copyrights, I should add that watch the tiny stickers and painted walls of old buildings, they may hide some copyrighted material, too.

Good tips thank you! I did upload a risky image and it was rejected but not on copyright grounds. There you go!
