Submission + - IOC claims Olympians' name as Intellectual Propert (

gehrehmee writes: As usual, the International Olympic Committee is coming down on hard on people mentioning things related to the Olympics without permission. This time it's UVEX sporting supplies, who is sponsering Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. Without explaination, their front page was today updated to include a tounge-in-cheek poem about UVEX's interaction with the IOC. Can the IOC really claim an Olypmian's name as their own intellectual property?
