One thought on “The Law Embraces the Internet Archive

  1. I don’t see why some legal services firm hasn’t already gotten into the business of providing Web page authentication, e.g., allowing me to “snapshot” a given site at a given time, to produce a court-ready evidentiary document. Obviously the virtue of the Archive is that it snarfs up tons of stuff you’ll never know in advance you’ll need; perhaps there’s a business opportunity for Brewster, to allow for companies to pay him for a greater focus on potential targets of concern.
