Unfortunately it is a popular pastime amongst many of the English to complain about everything around them. If their dire predictions fail to come true then they just invent things to complain about.

We don't need to invent things to complain about, we have Americans giving us more than enough to complain about;)

For these people not only is the glass half empty....

....and the remaining half is filled with warm beer :( - even I can't stomach that I am a Brit!

scatterbrained, private means non commercial. Social media photos are generally non commercial in nature. The IOC is worried about commercial use of photos. In fact, what you posted is actually a cut and paste of the actual words, which makes it read different than it is.

19.6.3 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

the actual quote clearly states no VIDEO OR SOUND on social sites, but it does NOT mention photos.

As far as the Ticket conditions, it does say Images, video and sound, i.e. photos; can only be used for private and domestic purposes. This precludes social media, which is neither private nor domestic.

Really? You don't think that posting to my Facebook page is 'domestic use'. I would disagree. And if LOCOG thought that that first clause

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

did cover social networking sites, why does the second clause

a Ticket Holder may not license, broadcast or publish video and/or sound recordings, including on social networking websites

specifically mention them? The only reason I can think of is that the first clause refers to images, video and sound; while the second clause refers only to the latter two - images are not included.

Why would they be more restrictive of sound and video than of images? And, since MJPEG is a succession of independent still images, are MJPEG files OK to upload to facebook? After all, they're just a lot of still images put into one file! :twisted:

like i said earlier , they dont really care if you are "sharing" images with your buddies on facebook or a forum.

they do however care if people are going to youtube to see the video of an event you uploaded instead of watching it on the television station that paid for the broadcast rights.

there is a big, big difference.

McDonald's fries are tasty, but are they even made from potatoes? I'm afraid to eat them anymore. They lost our business after the whole pink slime affair.

Every company and every person makes mistakes. If you stop buying from a company once they've made any sort of mistake you'll soon be out of companies to buy from.

Pink slime meat? Never heard of it. Just where do you live?

Some people need to do some research and exploring for themselves before overreacting. Not saying the quoted specifically but I already posted this link below.

McDonald's specifically has used white breast meat since 2003... almost a decade before this "Pink Slime" was a hot topic issue.
