The Middleton family's website, PartyPieces.co.uk, is advertising party goods under the heading “Let the Games Begin” and even had a ring toss game in the Olympic colors.
An official on behalf of the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) said of the Middleton's website: “There are no infringements and the products are fine. We will ask them to make minor changes to some copy.’’
Olympic enforcement officers have begun patrolling venues throughout the UK to ensure traders are not illegally associating themselves with the games.
A LOCOG spokeswoman reportedly said: “We will act if there is a commercial tie-in in any way. We will ring and explain the obligations and most times this dialogue is friendly, people are usually doing it to be part of the fun, but companies are not allowed to promote an association with the Games if they are not a sponsor.”
