Course Aims:

This podcast aims to examine the ways in which marketing teams could be caught out by legislation which has been put in place to prevent non-sponsors from gaining advantage by suggesting links with the London Olympic Games. Issues relating to individual athletes sponsored by non-Olympic sponsors will also be discussed.

  • Know what rights of association with the Olympics there are;
  • Understand when these rights will be infringed;
  • Know what defences are available;
  • Understand the restrictions on individual athletes who are sponsored by non-Olympic sponsors;
  • Know the other intellectual property rights issues that may be involved when Olympic references are made.
