Firm Sues Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine

“A Philadelphia health-care advocacy company is suing operators of the Wayback Machine in a case experts described as one of the first legal challenges to Internet archiving.

Healthcare Advocates contends the Internet Archive, a San Francisco nonprofit that runs the Wayback Machine, botched Healthcare’s request to block access to archived materials from its Web site during a trade secrets dispute in 2003.”
