Nikitu, thank you for the quick response. Since I am new here, I am still reading through the message boards to learn as much as I can and I hope I am not asking questions that have already been covered. My question regarding luxury private homes is in regard to images taken from the street. Aside from famous houses, do they generally require a release?
I've been trying to figure out for some time whether buildings designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi are copyrighted, in particular Casa Mila and Casa Batllo. Gaudi died in 1926 and therefore I assume they are not. Any ideas?
Having read through all 20 pages of this thread, found it very informative, just wish I had read it earlier. Would advise all newbies to do so, I found the answers to my questions here! Thank you Dreamstime admins. :)

Elifranssens, Gaudi's casas are not copyright if shot from outside. But inside they are museums and are protected by copyright. Scottysally2, you are a great example for all our contributors and everyone should follow your lead. We are glad you found so much needed information here.
Quoted Message: Hi Kelly,a new law has just come out in Germany. it says you cant photograf a private house or a garden or other private places without permit of the owner. If you havent that permit you can get immediately denunciated.
Could you please post the § just for reference ? Thanks
Jesus..haven´t seen that, this post has been done years ago...
Newbie here as well as to microstock. Thought that I understood the property release issue until I searched CN Tower in DT and came up with many photos that indicated no property release. So decided to submit a couple of my own images only to have them rejected because I did not have a property release. Now I am really confused. Can anyone please clarify the policy?
Yes, I see that now. However, how do photos of recognizable buildings qualify as editorial under the policy as stated. The just do not seem to fit the description to me. Is this just an acceptable method for circumventing the need for a property release?
Moderator hello! I upload "foot massage pictures", and have signed a "property release contract" do not know what reason was editor of refuse! Please let us know. The web site for photos, https://www.dreamstime.com/pr_images.php? Pr = 19319
Dear moderators, I can not understand why it is refused to ID 27340825 image with the indication of the reason "The image contains elements that might be protected by copyright/trademark (logos, brands, specific buildings etc.), can identify a property/product (letters, numbers), or could raise usage problems, therefore it doesn't qualify as a RF stock image. Analyze the photo closely and remove these elements if possible or try to obtain a property release." From specified the image doesn't contain anything.
