Corporate sponsorship gone insane

Apparently, people using, eating, or wearing things made by companies other than the official Olympics sponsors are getting a bit extra scrutiny in Athens right now, to the extent that in the midst of a hot Athenian summer, "spectators are also being asked to leave "unlicensed" water bottles."

As a society, we have gone completely, utterly mad. Good heavens.

Comments So how long before wearing the logo of the corporate sponser is seen as the only moral choice? I have the feeling that raising an unbranded child is going to be more difficult in coming years. Posted by lee at 12:08am on 15 Aug 2004
