Is Canada About To Outlaw Google And The Internet Archive?
from the not-a-good-day-for-the-archive... dept
Quite a day for the Internet Archive. First it gets sued for letting lawyers access some websites that a company wished had disappeared for good, and now it turns out that Canada may be outlawing the Internet Archive, as well as Google’s cache feature. The details aren’t entirely clear, but that’s because the bill as currently presented isn’t entirely clear, either. It’s worded in a vague way that could certainly be read to suggest that Google and the Internet Archive are violating copyright law by caching or saving internet content that was created by others.
