I just go a rejection on this image file_thumbview_approve for content that could be copywrite or trademark.  The inspector was kind enough to point me in the direction of the bottom of the shoes and pants button.


The only probem is that I have already altered the button so that it does not look like the original.  Please find below the 100% size of the button.

The bottom of the shoe is a generic foot which has been accepted a few times, as in this one


file_thumbview_approve


or other times in this lightbox.


Should I contact scout or redo it?  There is part of me that thinks in the time it took to write this I could have redone it.


100% here

I would re-upload with a clearly visible notice at the top of the image description field explaining that the logo on the brass button has been altered so as to be unrecognisable, and see how that goes.

That ^ may work; the surer route would be to fully remove anything that could look like a logo.

If it were me I would have removed the design on the bottom of the shoe as well just to be safe. I realize some have been approved but I could see an argument to be made that they shouldn't have.

Thanks Kelvin, thanks Donald.  I will edit this one and remove the shoe design from any future ones too.
