Brewster Kahle on the Internet Archive  MAY 22 2002

Paraphrase from Brewster Kahle's presentation of his Internet Archive project: "leaving everything up to the publishing industry is not the best way to run a culture." The Internet Archive's policy with regard to archiving materials is to take first and ask questions later because the information on the Internet is too culturally valuable to lose. Damn the copyright laws, full speed ahead!

Brewster also said "stealing from the library is dorky", but I can't remember the context.
