The Internet Archive has collected writings from more than one hundred million people so far. …
There is currently a two-to-one matching offer for donations to the nonprofit organization. …
The Internet Archive is currently fighting a legal challenge from four large publishers over its ability to lend out more digital copies of a book than it has physical copies. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is helping with a legal defense.
