I got a message from Internet Archive responding to this. Their blog post is at You can read our new blog post here: http://blog.archive.org/2020/03/30/internet-archive-responds-why-we-released-the-national-emergency-library/<https://urldefense.com/v3/__http:/blog.archive.org/2020/03/30/internet-archive-responds-why-we-released-the-national-emergency-library/__;!!C5qS4YX3!SUfF6X-vX4dXQhvBO0k89jbcp3xMTXQO21TFjpJCrmFobiyhUMWMAA7DFXEZ0o5VEA$>

They claim the authors' ad publishers message is "full of falsehoods" and that any author can opt out and have their material removed quickly.

I don't know the truth but wanted to make sure both sides are heard.
