    I find this ridicules. I have been to 7 Olympic Games and taken pictures and Videos of all of them. This include Melbourne. Moscow, Tokyo, Seoul, Sydney , Munich and Atlanta. Why is London so restrictive. Any thing you taken with your own camera is yours. Although I have not made money out of them I have shown them on many sites.

    I suppose its no different that musical acts forbidding taping video/audio/stills at concerts. They want to own their intellectual property as its all they have to sell. Olympics are funny in that they know they cannot enforce it but are attempting to stop it by magic.
