Geocities is back, in torrent form

An amazing news Geocities now lives on as a torrent: [wired.com...]

It's really refreshing to see positive news like this. I was thinking the same thing as the people that saved Geocities, The site is a piece of history and even could be considered a piece of modern/living art, deleting it was a bit drastic. It's like destroying all the issues from some cheap magazine from all the libraries of the world because no one reads that magazine anymore; this would never happen, yet Yahoo did just that for Geocities.

Now, on a more webmaster topic: what is the copyright status on this archive? I can only assume tons of people will download it, seed it with ads and make thousands of sites with it. If the copyrights are opened, this is an amazing business idea I am just sharing.

Fantastic! I've been archived on OoCities, my small piece of the "digital heritage" preserved a bit longer. Whew.
