Expect the Wayback Machine to go away. "Internet Archive sued over Wayback Machine"

The nonprofit Internet Archive, now nearly ten years old, is on the defending end of a bizarre copyright lawsuit.

If we were wiser people, instead of shutting down websites when American lawyers line their pockets and destroy the best innovation man kind has for collaboration and intellectual advancement (with the Internet in its current state I can find in minutes what used to require a physical trip to the library) we would simply move the websites outside of the United States. The Internet belongs to the world and should not be tainted and ruined with stupid US laws.

The Wayback Machine is not a copyright infringement; it’s a necessary preservation of electronic history!
