Even if you think OpenLibrary fucked up with how they handled the loosening of CDL restrictions, is this how you're supposed to handle compensating authors? By letting the biggest publishers whove been pushing to make digital lending financially impossible for libraries with smaller budgets take down one of the most accessible research libraries in the world?

I depend on libraries for basically all my reading needs since my income is *wallet with moths coming out of it* and I'm trying not to take any of this shit personally because obviously I'm not the only person affected at all by this, but goddamn it's scary. Absolutely no way this'll stop at just the IA if the lawsuit is successful, I've already seen """woke""" authors bemoaning that city libraries check their books out for free :thisisfine:

The Internet Archive lawsuit that's acting as a trial balloon for abolishing digital lending at libraries is extremely upsetting...but seeing people have the absolute wrong takes on it HAS led me to finally stop reading the comments and replies at least

No way a nostalgia-based virtual world in 2040 that literally everyone's escaped to would be all about like robotron instead of warring factions of Steven Universe avatars vs JoJos avatars

Show thread

Also are you telling me that in 2040 not a single person is nostalgic for media made in the 2010s? No one's like dressed up as Peppa Pig with a tommy gun????
