The Democratic PAC Priorities USA recently pulled a political ad with footage of Governor Mitt Romney from the opening ceremony of the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. The group axed the ad after the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) sent a cease and desist letter claiming that use of Olympics footage violated their intellectual property rights. Apparently, both political parties took note: Within days of the ad going offline, the Romney campaign website set to “private” an ad featuring a clip from the 2002 Games and reportedly nixed other planned ads with Olympics footage.
