How a Google+ GIF Can Get You In Trouble During the Sochi Olympics


I know it may seem like there is a simple answer to this question but due to the recent guidelines from the International Olympic Committee regarding photos and videos, the answer has become a challenge. According to the IOC, participants “can post still photographs taken within Olympic Venues on social media platforms or websites for personal use.”

As far as video guidelines, participants “cannot post any video and/or audio of the events, competitions or any other activities which occur at Olympic Venues (including the Olympic Villages). Such video and/or audio must only be taken for personal use and in particular must not be uploaded and/or shared to a posting, blog or tweet on any social media platforms, or to a website.”
