@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>Anyone familiar with the copyright policy of archive.org?15:48:44

@stragu:matrix.orgStéphane Guillou / stragu (he/him/his) Not sure what you mean, Ixquick <OG> ? All I know is that it all depends on each item in there, i.e. what the uploader/rights owner decided the licence should be. 05:42:09

Great varied electronic music by micro, released back in June this year. What you pay will be donated. Excerpt of the notes:

all proceeds from this record will be donated.
while i don't want to promote my art at this time, it is the best way for me to help fundraise for the numerous causes and individuals who need support. i will mainly be donating funds to Brave Space Alliance, a Black Trans-led LGBTQ center on the South Side of Chicago.
let us fight for all beings and for the dismantling of the white capitalist systems of death, destruction, racism, patriarchy, misogyny, transphobia, and all of their atrocities. there are more of us

What kind of content will they take down
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>e.g.05:45:52
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>If I upload a full movie, will they take it down?05:46:16
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>Or is it fair use, since it is not monetized at all05:46:44
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>(a current film, in the last 5-10 years)05:47:04
@stragu:matrix.orgStéphane Guillou / stragu (he/him/his)If it is conventionally copyrighted, I believe it will promptly be taken down. And I don't think it would be particularly wise, given that they are being currently attacked by publishers because they made books more available than usual during the Pandemic -> https://blog.archive.org/2020/07/29/internet-archive-responds-to-publishers-lawsuit/ Putting a copyrighted movie on there could give these trolls more evidence to bring the Archive down.05:49:45
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>Yeah, heard about that05:50:42
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>Stéphane Guillou / stragu (he/him/his): well, I uploaded one a while ago, and it is still up05:51:21
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG>Has views05:51:30
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG> So I'm guessing that unlike YouTube there is no algorithmic scanning, someone has to manually report it 05:51:40
@ixquick111:matrix.orgIxquick <OG> I'm guessing that old movies should probably be fine? 05:51:54
@stragu:matrix.orgStéphane Guillou / stragu (he/him/his)Depends on when the copyright expired and it made it into the public domain. I think it's common that people upload things assumed to be in the public domain, to then discover that the rights have been retained by someone/something, so it's taken down. It depends on the country of publication. But I don't know much about those things.06:00:33
