  • Two Common Misconceptions About Web Archiving
    • old content is  obsolete, stale, bad
    • The Internet Archive has every copy of everything that has ever existed
  • There are other archives that may have the same or similar content. There may be a need to resolve conflicts with the content of the archives
  • A single archive is vulnerable.
  • In the Web world, in order to monetize their content the copyright owner has to minimize the number of copies.
  • Archives aren’t magic web sites They’re just web sites.
  • Don’t Throw Away the Original URL – Use Robust Links!
