Submission + - Facebook Users Posting Photos Of Olympics Could End Up Being Sued (itproportal.com) 1

hypnosec writes: What better way to welcome what is being described as the world's "first social media Olympics" than by introducing an extremely anti-social policy? Not a clue? You're not alone. With London's summer 2012 games due to take place in the very near future, you'd think that organizers would make more of an effort and persuade people to show more of an interest — yet it appears the complete opposite has happened, with strict guidelines banning athletes from posting photos of themselves on Twitter with products that aren't official Olympics sponsors, as well as prohibiting videos or photos to be taken from the athlete's village. Oh and just for good measure, fans could find themselves barred from sharing videos and photos on Facebook and YouTube of themselves delighting in said Olympics action.
