    I want my reply to Google be "Here is my authorization to use..." + said authorization, nothing else. Also I don't want it to take too long as my ticket with Google Support may close.
    I don't get why Valve ignored me. I wish Valve give us some templates and facility to deal with these situations.

    But thanks for your words.

    edit: I think in last resort I can provide my API key, that seems to be the closest of a tangible proof of permission I can get.

      Just recently my app updates started getting rejected again. I've been trying to track down the exact issue, but I'm not yet sure what the problem is. It is really frustrating because the rejection notices are so vague, as I'm sure you are aware. I previously had been using screenshots with the hero images in them, with no problem, but maybe this has changed. I just removed the last screenshots in the playstore with hero images in them and re-submitted, so I'll know if that was the problem in a couple of hours.

        Update: that fixed my problem. It seems hero (or item?) images are getting flagged automatically now. So I would just keep them out of your screenshots to be safe for now.

          Do you have Dota images in your app?

            I have a couple, but it doesn't seem like those are getting flagged. Only the ones in the Play Store screenshots.

              I forget which ones, but I've seen a number of apps (on reddit) that literally use some of the dota promo art as their screenshots when they have nothing to do with dota to begin with (crappy devs just trying to make a quick buck and disappear).

              so I would say that would probably be google taking a very broad spectrum approach to dealing with it.
              it's easier to vet the screenshots rather than try and vet the entire app.
