Redbubble's removals of images

Latest image to be automatically removed by Redbubble’s automatic search and destroy mechanism – without bothering to see if actually necessary or true or not – was an image of mine entitled ‘All American’.

Redbubble took this down because of a supposed copyright action from the NFL (America’s national football league) who presumably claim to have the rights to this – what would appear to be totally generic – wording. ‘All’ and ‘American’??? (But that is a diversion given the simpler issue raised below)

The image simply showed a ‘public place’ photo of a non-NFL team playing on a local football field. With the title appropriately chosen, because this scene was so classically ‘all American’ in content and context.

This automated obsequiousness of RB is starting to get truly ridiculous! And of course they place the onus on yourself of jumping through a pile of hoops and spending a lot of time in any attempt to correct their error and wrongdoing.
