Re: [ga] Restoration of Domain Policy Archives
Will the very smart historians who copied all of the archives please step
forward, so that the entities stepping forward to host the new site can
incorporate the archives into the site.
Next, would one of you smart IP type lawyer people please venture a preliminary
sketch on the proprietary rights of posters to the closed list. Has this been
litigated before? How does the control of the list factor we use in determining
liability for the host factor into control of the information? It would seem to
stand to reason if they excercise this type of control that they would be liable
for defamatory comments contained therein.
Now that one of the places I used to go to get answers to these type of
questions is closed some redundancy may occur in matters already well laid out.
