Can LOCOG Uphold The Ruling On Photos

 

As everyone is now aware the latest ” LOCOG” ruling relates to anyone taking photos on their mobile phones while they are attending the games, cannot upload them to Twitter or Facebook!

Firstly this in my personal opinion takes away our so-called ” Free Rights ” as any photograph on your phone is yours by the fact of ownership or as it is written ” The new legislation would effectively shift ownership of photos, videos and messages to users, granting them the “right to be forgotten.”

Meaning simply –

That sites like Facebook would not only be required to close an account when requested, but also to package and return photos and messages to the user before deleting any trace of them from their own servers.

Victoria Reding EU Commission says the reforms would harmonize 27 national laws across the Euro zone and give social media users control over how their data is being used, but players in the social media industry are incredulous, objecting both in principle and practice.

So it is still wide open to who really owns your photographs on any social media site.

The question is can LOCOG uphold this ruling if no law has been passed to say who really owns the social media, you ” freely without payment” upload to your social media site?
