New paper on reclaiming scrubbed information

Let the People Know the Facts: Can Government Information Removed from the Internet be Reclaimed? by Susan Nevelow Mart, University of California, Hastings College of the Law: June 13, 2005.

This article will discuss the bases of the public’s right to government information, the types of government information that have been removed from the Internet, whether the rationale, if any, given for the removal was appropriate, and the possibilities for returning the information to the Internet.
