Olympic photograph ban policy, NOT as we first thought...

(Image sourced from http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44223000/jpg/_44223626_stadium_design416.jpg

After news broke last week on the London Olympics policy to ban all publicising of images taken at the olympics on social network sites (for the full story see http://biggerdimensions.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/no-photographs-at-london-2012-olympics.html), there has been an uproar from photographers, journalists and the public, demanding answers to what seems to be an absurd movement.

A spokesman for the London 2012 Olympic Committee (Locog) has issue'd a response stating that they "are not looking to stop private individuals from posting photographs on social networks" and that the intentions of the T&C's in the olympic is to prevent photo's being used for commercial purposes, thus gaining the individual monetary value over the olympic committee.
He has also acknowledged that the wording was unclear and all will be clarified when tickets are mailed.
