The ‘Archive Team’ Rescues User Content From Doomed Sites

PCWorld – “What happens when your favorite Web host decides to go out of business and ice the content from thousands of users like you? Does all of that data just disappear, never to be seen again? It can happen, easily. Under current law, a cloud or hosting site has a pretty much unlimited right to decide whether the content that people put on its pages remains available or vanishes. And a site that chooses to delete content is under no obligation to preserve the data or even to give the data’s contributors advanced notice of when the purging will occur.”
