Hi guys… I have a soft rejection for a good reason….

The reviewer ask me to be sure that the country flags that I include in my file are correctly licensed for commercial distribution.

Can someone tell me…... if I recreate flags of country like vectors…... can I include them in my file

Hi realthing,

If look look closer at the rejection note, the copyright issue isn’t regarding country flags, rather the basketball logo you used in the preview video. We don’t allow corporate brands or identities to be used in any marketplace item or promotional material.

This is the flag the note is referring to: http://d.pr/i/NlnV

I hope that helps!

Hi and thanks for the fast respond MotionRevolver :)

I saw this about the logo and I change it . But with my file I include 32 vector country flags, so there is also in the message I get from you this:

“Please make syre those flag files are correctly licensed for commercial distribution. ” So…. i dont know what to do…. delete the flags or let them ?

Actually the file doesn’t change. With or without the flags is doing what has to do…. the flags were lets say something like a bonus

Flags of actual approved and existing COUNTRIES are not licensed at all.

Who would “own” a flag that represents a whole country, if they actually had an owner?

the people of those countries? :)

use of flags in unauthorized way may get one in big trouble in some countries.

This page is in italian but you can see from the pictures some of the rules on how to use the Italian national flag.

Fortunately, no state will lose time with a designer using a flag in his design. :D Or at least we hope :)
