Gospel music singer in dilemma as she risks her social media accounts blocked for sharing Tokyo Olympics footage.
Size 8 excitedly shared how her song, ‘Mateke’ was played on the background during the Olympics last night.
Here is a the whole story..
This comes after Olympic gold medallist sprinter Elaine Thompson-Herah was mistakenly blocked on Instagram, its owner Facebook Inc has confirmed.
This fastest woman in the world, was blocked on Tuesday after sharing videos from her 100 and 200 metre races on her Instagram account.
After several hours her access to the app was reinstated later.
Due to copyright issues of the ongoing Olympics games in Tokyo Japan,there are strict copyright restrictions on sharing content from the Games online. Thompson-Herah said on Twitter that she was blocked from accessing her account because she posted videos that she “did not have the right to do so”.
But the application of the account suspension is reported to be done mistakenly, Facebook spokesperson told Reuters news agency.
It’s strictly prohibited by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to post Olympic Games content containing audio and video of the sporting event or medal ceremony.
The main reason is because a set number of broadcasters hold exclusive rights to broadcast the Games. Their rights include distribution on social media.
