IOC Starts to Delete Video of Olympics on YouTube

If you are excited over the Olympics and recorded something to share with the rest of the world on YouTube, chances are it will be taken down in short order. The IOC has given unprecedented coverage rights to official sponsors of the Olympics, but unauthorized copy and posting is being aggressively removed almost as fast as it goes online.

Search for scenes from the spectacular opening ceremony in London and while you will find excerpts from official broadcasters like the BBC, videos uploaded by ordinary users are being gradually being stamped out.
