Internet Archive Is Being Sued

The Internet Archive ( is being sued for copyright infringement and for violation of the DMCA. This case should be thrown out immediately. If this goes through, it would set a precedent for anyone being sued for not clearing out their Temporary Internet Files.

Companies need to get this one straight - if you put content out the web in the open, you cannot come back later and get made because someone has that content.

The Internet Archive is not using their content to profit and they even stripe out images of their archived pages. This lawsuit should be a no-brainer. And what's more, it should never have gotten passed the filing stage.
