This is bonkers: the US put a guy in prison for TWELVE MONTHS for selling copies of the Windows Restore CDs Microsoft gives away. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/gyz8y9/meet-the-e-waste-recycler-jailed-for-a-year-for-infringing-microsofts-copyright
@hugh copyright is fucked up
well if he sold something that was given for free, that's kind of a scam
@kazuma Did you even read it? He was charged with copyright infringement. You can’t get them now from MS, these are for old OS versions.
yes, i disagree with what he was charged with but selling stuff that isn't yours, whether or not it's being currently distributed by the producer, is wrong
it's why things like archive.org exists
This is a Mastodon instance primarily for Australasian Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums and Records people, and anyone else who wants to hang out with them.
