That's a little crop of an image I want to upload, but I've got some doubt about copyright: if I delete the small name, number and copyright symbol can I upload it?Schermata%202012-12-08%20a%2011

Yes considering that the remaining "art" is rather "generic" then removing the copyright info will be ok

Removing the copyright is OKAY? Really I'd say not

Actually, sorry Dieter, I'm going to have to disagree here. There is a clear statement of copyright ownership of the design. Removing the copyright claim does not dissolve the copyright. While it is somewhat generic in appearance, this is nonetheless a design that was made as a "work of art" so to speak - it's not like a "hard hat only" sign for a construction site which is designed for a utilitarian purpose - in this case the design of the sign IS the point of the product and I think we'd be treading on thin ice to start licensing reproductions.

For the OP, I would highly suggest making your own signs for shoots rather than using something you've purchased that has a clear copyright claim on it. It's a shame to have a shoot go to waste or to have to retouch every image.

I would. Even if these should slip through now, and I doubt that they will, you can't really agree to the statement that you own the copyright of everything in the image. Save your upload slots.

That's ok, I've deleted the uploads, but if I delete also the words "disaster area" and the warning sign, can i upload the photo with the red sign and the external black and white pattern?

You understand that in my position I cannot explicitly tell you it's okay to upload content which I know to be an expressly copyrighted design.

That said, depending on the prominence of the sign within the overall image, it may be an OK usage. It would depend on the extent to which it is the focus of the image vs an incidental element. Kind of like the difference between taking a photo featuring a late model car as the subject (not OK) vs taking a photo of a person and there happens to be a late model car off in the background (OK). The edited versions may get through inspection just fine.
