    Olympic Photography Rule 4: Images aren’t to be sold

    Any images taken by non-accredited photographers (and, frankly, that’s most of us) at the Olympics are to be used solely for private or domestic purposes. That means you can’t sell them.

    The same applies for any videos or audio recordings you may make, according to LOCOG.

    In fact, you’re even prohibited from putting audio and video files of the Games on your social media channels.

    How to work around this rule
    There isn’t a whole lot of wiggle room on this one, but note the social media ban only applies to audio and video. According to the full terms at London 2012, you can post your still images to Facebook all you like.
