Ryder Cup says ‘no’ to uploading pictures to social media sites at this year’s event

The Telegraph reported over the weekend that the Ryder Cup, the biennial golf tournament between teams from Europe and the United States, has banned the uploading of photographs by fans and others to social media sites like Twitter.

According to the paper, the rules for this year’s event, to take place at Gleneagles in Scotland, are a bit restrictive:

“Images taken with a camera, mobile phone or other electronic device cannot be used for any purpose other than for private and domestic purposes. You must not sell, license, publish (including, without limitation, via Twitter or Facebook or any other social media site) or otherwise commercially exploit photographs.”

In other words, you can take a picture, but don’t upload it. Good luck enforcing that one.

(By the way, visited Auchterarder in Perthshire many years ago, would love to go back. Ate at The Peat Inn, which I assume still exists, though it is quite a drive from Auchterarder.)
