WTF

The UK government has drawn up bizarre rules for the London Olympics 2012 Games, under which it will be against rules to tweet, share on Facebook and in any way share photos of the event.


Conditions of entry for Olympic ticket holders suggest that rules for such restrictions may have already been decided, Amateur Photographer reported.

The London 2012 conditions state: “Images, video and sound recordings of the Games taken by a Ticket Holder cannot be used for any purpose other than for private and domestic purposes and a Ticket Holder may not license, broadcast or publish video and/or sound recordings, including on social networking websites and the internet more generally, and may not exploit images, video and/or sound recordings for commercial purposes under any circumstances, whether on the internet or otherwise, or make them available to third parties for commercial purposes”.

Rather than being the celebration organizers promised, London 2012 is rapidly risking becoming one of the most intimidating and restrictive events seen for decades.

Amateur Photographer (AP) is investigating whether visitors to this summer’s Olympics will be banned from posting photos onto social networking websites.

Photographer Peter Ruck contacted AP saying that Olympic organizing committee Locog plans to ban the posting of images on social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Ruck, a semi-retired freelance, blasted the rules as unenforceable.

He said there will be a 'million and one' people taking photos and video, whether by camera or mobile camera phone.

“The sheer notion of trying to ban any form of photography, other than for viewing at home, is nonsensical - it beggars belief”, Ruck added.

Very much like what happens at music venues these days. They'll have Stewards everywhere taking cameras and deleting any images taken at the event.

Professional cameras (removable lenses) will be confiscated and locked away until the owner is leaving the event.

Usually mobile phone cameras are fine as long as they are snapping pics and not filming.

At the big concerts they seem more concerned about the patrons nearest the stage or in the balcony (if there is one) They cannot stop everyone. In the music venues it's about people making money out of it - nothing to do with 'security'

People pay lots of money to see these, imo, shitty events and I think they should be entitled to take home pics and films and share them and if they make money, then the better. This could be the copyright Olympics, the police-state Olympics, the Olympics of Greed and so on. Can I say boycott ?
