Archival Footage

Last month's fire at the Universal Studios film studio in the US - the blaze missed the studio's negative-containing film vault, but engulfed a separate video archive entirely - served to highlight just how crucial non-physical, digital storage really is. A very good place to see the possibilities of online storage (and watch a ton of free movies while you're at it) is at The Internet Archive, a repository of public domain treasures. Online since 1996, the non-profit organization - which actually cites the fire at the Library of Alexandria as one of their reasons for being - has digitized Internet Web sites, music, books, classic cartoons and a deluge of Golden Age Hollywood movies. Copyrights don't last forever (and sometimes simply don't get renewed), a handy fact that allows fantastic movies like The Man Who Knew Too Much, Shadow of a Doubt, The Battleship Potemkin, and Charlie Chaplin's The Kid to be offered up for free online streaming, or for downloading all in one go. (Unfortunately, the site is a bit lacking in Japanese cinematic content, and - due to loopholes and legal wrangling too baffling to detail here - early Disney animations have still not entered the public domain.)
