Unreleased console from the big THREE

We're urgently fundraising for an unreleased games console from the big three game companies.

There is less than 5 of these known to exist, and we have the chance to secure one and document it on our new channel.

All data/software found on the system will be shared with researchers, but donators will get first access. High res 4k video will be done on the device and it's internals for future reference.

This fundraiser is time sensitive.

So copywrite pushing companies are Law-suiting The internet archive over its National Emergency Library that made more than a million e-books freely available during the pandemic. This Probably wont close down the Internet Archive But expect a lot of Vital history, Video games, E-books, Files to be removed from the site.

I got this info from PCgamer, I'm not 100% certain on theses facts, But if they are true its a dark day for preservation.

This truly breaks my heart. Corporations don't, and will never, have an interest in preserving our culture. It's so messed up that they have a say in it. Is there anything we can do to fight this?

Edit: And by fight, I don't mean just donate to IA, I already do that on a semi-regular basis.

However, the publishers may not be interested in forcing the Internet Archive out of business. Their goal is to get the Internet Archive to stop scanning their books. If they win the lawsuit, they might force the group to shut down its book scanning operation and promise to not start it up again, then allow it to continue its other, less controversial offerings.

Ok. Books and literature in general are actually being covered globally, so then maybe it's not gonna be such a big loss anyway. :)

Still, this is worrying.
Kinda shows that companies don't give a damn about preserving stuff.

That's why other entities are doing the preservation work for them :) I hope this will end well, but I always asked myself how they were never sued before...

Seems like a simple DMCA matter. Which the Archive has honored. There haven't been any real updates on lawsuits and it seems to be business as usual over there.
