In other words:

Each of the following would be taken down at the demand of a "copyright holder".

The film Detour (1945)
The film Behind Green Lights (1946)
The book Moby Dick by Herman Melville
The book Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

The people at the Archive are completely devoid of any ability or desire to determine whether an item is in the public domain.

Any work at the Archive may be destroyed at any time without any explanation.

All works at the Archive may be destroyed tomorrow without any explanation.

Nobody ought to trust that the Archive will archive and preserve anything.

Archive.org ought to be renamed Annihilate.org.
