Hello,

I've got a lot of shots from a big air show and was wondering if I needed property releases. I'm imagining that I don't for government owned aircraft, but what about the privately owned aircraft? I'm assuming any with logos will require cloning those out.

Thanks,

Todd

I'm just uploading a series of photos from a local airshow as well. I've removed all the logos and identifying marks from the private planes as well as the US Air Force/Navy ones as well, so as to make them appear as generic as possible.

I think you are OK with these, because the planes themselves are generally commonly available designs, styles, shapes etc. If it was a 100% unique custom plane where the design was something original then there could be a problem of property copyright.

Obviously, my word is not "The Word", but this is how I see it. If an Admin can provide a definitive answer that would give us a proper guideline.

My major subject is aviation. Remeber to remove all registration numbers, ID´s and remarkable color schemes as well. I´ve had some images of planes rejected, because the color scheme was easy to be recognized as a particular airline.
Usually I do best by "cloning away" every letter and every number on the image and forget about planes that have a special painting. I´ve not had any problems with any releases, even if major parts of the airport (inside or outside) were part of the image.

I too have had problems with numbers on aircraft. Istock rejected a shot I had of a Mig21 Soviet jet because of the numbers. Trying to retouch it out just ruins the photo. Any names or numbers have to be eliminated as well as logos.
