This morning I received an email from HQ saying they have deactivated my image of an Olympic Flag.

Reason for deactivation:
The Olympics

Due to contractual agreements with the International Olympic Committee, there are restrictions on Olympic themed content for all our collections and we regret we can not offer this file.

Do note that imagery featuring exterior views of previous Olympic venues and parks may be submitted in their unedited form to our Editorial collection provided Olympic logos, torches or mascots
are not visible. Interior views of venues require consent.


Yet other images of just the Olympic Flag are still available for DL.

So even after supplying copies of my accreditation, credentials, photo vest and application which states I can sell editorial images they. They stated:

As your file has been deactivated for copyright reasons it is not possible for it to be reactivated.

Yet another example of a double standard that we at IS cannot have these types of editorial images, even with credentials, and Getty can.
