Groklaw Will Be Archived At Library of Congress 81

inode_buddha writes "Groklaw has just received an invitation to be archived in the Library of Congress. In true FOSS style, PJ has decided to ask all the contributors and commenters if they wish to be included, since commenters own the copyrights on their comments. So far, the answer seems to be 'yes,' even for Anonymous Cowards. It's a great honor for Groklaw, but one wonders how many AC's there are, and whether Congress or future researchers would think that they are all one person."

    I give my congratulations to PJ. She has done a remarkable service and has proven the Internet's power for citizen advocacy, education and activism. Her success can be measured by just how much her enemies tried to, and in some cases still try to discredit her.

    Or just prevent people contributing anonymously unless they give unconditional licence to reuse the prose, and affirm that they both own the content or have been granted permission to use it, or have fair use to it, under current copyright law.

    Perhaps Slashdot should be included. But as a counter example.

    I keed I keed. You guys are all great! Except for the ones who aren't.

    Actually I got suckered into reading user comments on the other day. Makes Slashdot look like powerful scholars who by all rights should be in charge of the playground. Not mopping up the melting snow with their ratty jackets.

    Damnit. I really do love you guys!

    PJ is notorious for censoring comments that she doesn't like. For instance, any reference to AllParadox will get your comment removed.

    It is PJ's blog and she can do what she likes but it isn't nearly as transparent as she would have us believe. It would be nice if they could restore the censored comments and archive those too.
