A New Day for Website Archiving 2.0

The Association of Research Libraries has released A New Day for Website Archiving 2.0.

Here's an excerpt:

A central issue in the fair use analysis is whether the use is "transformative." Campbell v. Acuff-Rose, 510 U.S. 569, 579 (1994). In the website archiving context, the question is whether a library's reproduction and subsequent display of entire websites without material alteration is "transformative." The case law and legal opinions discussed below all indicate that library website archiving for the purpose of preservation and scholarship is transformative as that term is used by courts in the fair use context.
