    "Intellectual Property" seems to be a bit nebulous

      A few days ago I had an image of a stream and waterfall in a Chickasaw National Recreation Area (managed by the National Park Service) rejected for "Intellectual Property". I have posted the image on the critique forum but, so far, have received no comment as to how it could possible violate someone's intellectual property rights.

       

      Today several images of the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial (again managed by the National Park Service) were rejected for "Intellectual Property". These are a bit easier to understand since buildings and monuments are involved, but it is a National Park site and several images of the memorial are already available on Adobe Stock. I am quite sure no property releases were available for the ones already on sale. My experience with government entities is that releases are difficult to obtain. In any case are releases needed for public buildings and structures?
