Those of you who surf the Internet Archive regularly can feel a
little safer... The FBI has backed off their demand to know what
you've been looking at.
I.A. successfully resisted such a demand in court.
The Patriot Act allows the FBI to demand info about library / archive
patrons, and the library / archive is FORBIDDEN BY LAW to even
discuss the request with anyone. I am surprised the gag order didn't
extend to court depositions, i.e the Archive weren't charged with a
crime simply for writing down their story in the lawsuit filing itself.
Those of you who imagine terrorists under your bed (and Indians
behind every tree) can feel less safe.
Good work, Internet Archive!
Viva La Libertad!
