Leave Society – Tao Lin, Vintage Books, 2021
throughout my two-week quarantine, i had a lovely routine of late afternoon naps followed by reading sessions in bed. really missing those hotel duvets now...
So I did a little reading about the lawsuit issue, and I decided to donate to the cause, because 1) EFF is backing IA, and 2)
"Additionally, Internet Archive founder Brewster Kahle told Vox in 2020 that “when nonprofit libraries have been sued in the past for helping their patrons access their collections, courts have ruled that they were engaging in fair use, as in the HathiTrust case.” A similar ruling was issued for a lawsuit against Google Books. "
"For copyrighted books, Internet Archive owns the physical books that they created the digital copies from and limits their circulation by allowing only one person to borrow a title at a time. "
That was good enough for me, for this debate.
