Free Movies and Music on the Internet – that won’t turn you into a criminal

Check out this blog post about the Internet Archive.  The Internet Archive is a little like a library/museum of online content. Basically, free books, music, videos, software, and websites that make you scream “what were they thinking?!” courtesy of the “Wayback Machine.”

According to their “About us” section:

The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library. Its purposes include offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format. Founded in 1996 and located in San Francisco, the Archive has been receiving data donations from Alexa Internet and others. In late 1999, the organization started to grow to include more well-rounded collections. Now the Internet Archive includes texts, audio, moving images, and software as well as archived web pages in our collections, and provides specialized services for adaptive reading and information access for the blind and other persons with disabilities.

The best part of the Internet Archive, we think, is the free movies and music/audio.  With categories like “Little Known Classics You NEED To Watch”, “Top 40 best free legal movies you can download right now”, and classic commercials that give you a peek into the mind of history, you’re bound to find something interesting to do without thinking about lawyers.

We’ll leave you with these links, from the early days of search engines:
