Sounds reasonable to me Patty
The only difference is that the athletes (who create the "show") aren't the ones publishing their "content" and do not make any or much money at all (except for the very best). NBC doesn't allow viewers to watch online unless they provided ISP info.
Yes, there is a dichotomy, free access with copy right control. Technology allows a wider reach with more control.
NBC has the right to limit access and the Games are not free to enter. Tickets are expensive.

I'm thinking that if they let you in with your camera and video cam, your footage should be OK to use (?). For official AAU-type Taekwondo tournaments, there is often a fee charged for bringing cameras and then you can publish the footage at will.

It can be tough finding some events televised at all. The way I understand the contractual rights, athletes don't own performances/coverage up front; but sponsors, countries/govt., NBC, and the IOC do - unlike Hubbers owning Hubs. Very stringent.
