Keep in mind that work reviews occur for many reasons. While it may seem like you’re being unfairly targeted, artwork suspensions don’t necessarily mean there is anything wrong with your work or account.
In the Partner Program review process, the temporary suspension is necessary to make sure the work adheres to the brand guidelines and that the rights holder thinks it’s a good representation of that brand before it’s approved for licensing.
In other cases, the automated system may suspend certain works to ensure compliance with our Intellectual Property Policies, Content & Community Guidelines and/or User Agreement.
If a work is released, it is not exempt from suspension or takedowns in the future.
Obligatory Yet Very Important Legal Disclaimer:
Don’t be fooled by any complicated jargon (and how snazzy we look in pinstripe). We are not your lawyer and this is not legal advice. We recommend contacting an attorney if you need an actual legal consultation.
Rather, this is general information aimed at giving you the legal lay of the land. While we can’t defend you in court, we know that art and IP ownership can be murky territory; the least we can do is arm you with the right kind of knowledge to get you started.
