I assume that the IOC has been granted some sort of permission by the
various participants in the olympic events.  So if you're
photographing, say, the opening ceremony, then your concern would not
only be with regard to the rights of the IOC directly, but also with
the rights of any opening ceremony participants who granted an
exclusive license to IOC.
