    This is the third time you have submitted this photo to our group. We do no accept a photo that is taken by another person unless it is
    digitally altered in some way….which this one is NOT. Sorry.

    This photo was submitted to Gems Gone Unnoticed. It is my understanding that you are not supposed to submit work, to the site, that was created by another person. This is due potential law suits for the unauthorized use of someone else’s work. We must be very careful as hosts and members not to create a situation where redbubble can be potentially held liable for the reason cited above. As a host, I can assure you that it is not a pleasant experience to reject anyone’s work for any reason. But some times we have no other choice. This is a wonderful piece forr the Christmas season and I do understand that it has great sentimental value to you, but also keep in mind that at least in Gems Gone Unnoticed we are evaluating, reviewing, and featuring art forms that are actually created by the artists themselves. And this piece does not meet that criteria. If you would like to submit a photograph that you have taken yourself, I would be more than happy to accept it into the group providing it meets the group guide lines. I hope this explanation clears this up for you.

  • thanks for clearing that up. although i do have all copy rights to this photo so noi worries there.
    my grandfather took it and has long passed,and my mother has given all copy rights to myself.
    i have a ton of his work, but have only posted 2 that i know of

    Well if you put what you just stated above in your descriptions on each post, you should not have any problems and should be fine. That would have everybody covered.
