Legality of links to ISO sources at archive.org

Post by jhansonxi » Tue Dec 26, 2017 3:11 am

I've noticed that Internet Archive is hosting a bunch of ISOs (Tonka Garage for example). They apparently have a DMCA exemption for this but this has to be renewed every three years. I'm not sure what happens with the existing files if the LoC decides to not allow the exemption. What is the WineHQ policy for linking to these pages in bug reports and the AppDB?

It should be okay to link to the Internet Archive.
