Matt Parker, who is from Cheltenham, created a website to assist people in London rent their homes out to visitors during the upcoming Olympic games. However the organising committee of the 2012 London Olympic Games have threatened him with legal action, citing the fact that he is using the Olympic brand without permission and is not an official sponsor.
He stated “It’s me and my website and I hope they reconsider and take a more lenient stance”.
Not wishing to lose the site, and presumably some sort of income it generates, he has modified relevant sections of the site.

Fair play for coming up with the idea, but not too surprising his knuckles were rapped if he attempted to associate the site with the Olympics in any way.
