USATODAY.com – Olympic athletes largely barred from posting online diaries

Parece que les van a prohibir escribir ex-profeso para las olimpiadas. Al principio pensé que era una gran barbaridad, pero sólo será una barbaridad pequeña, puesto a los que ya son bloggers les dejaran seguir siendo.

Me imagino que para ir a las olimpiadas, el COI (o el COE) te obliga firmar un contrato con clausulas no negociables.

La razón esgrimida es que quieren evitar competencia a los medios de comunicación acreditados… a los que sospecho que cobran. ¿Algún periodista puede confirmármelo?

The International Olympic Committee is barring competitors, as well as coaches, support personnel and other officials, from writing firsthand accounts for news and other Web sites.

An exception is if an athlete has a personal Web site that they did not set up specifically for the Games.

The IOC’s rationale for the restrictions is that athletes and their coaches should not serve as journalists — and that the interests of broadcast rightsholders and accredited media come first.
