Thing #22 Revisited

The media archives of the Wayback Machine are awesome. I looked through the Rick Prelinger section, because I've known about him since I was a gov docs librarian - he collected a lot of govt sponsored films. I watched the one about Taliesin. I didn't spend enough time at the site to really scope out what intellectual property constraints there might be, but the sheer volume of wonderful content makes me feel even more strongly that the dam is just bursting. I don't know how arcane and confusing legislation and the cranky people in big media can keep us from using all this great stuff!!
