Anyone got a copy in its entirety of the Facebook ToS prior to being rolled back that they can quickly send me? Thanks. –

    Wouldn’t it be on the server or cache somewhere since editors did read it in it’s entirety before posting story for research? Correct?

    Or wouldn’t it be on the wayback machine?

    “We p0wn you” didn’t make it past the first round of lawyer-revising, I take it?

    Curiously, I checked the Internet Archive to review the history of FB’s TOS but found that there are no archived copies after 12 October 2007. I can only imagine that FB asked the Internet Archive to stop saving copies of this public page. I note that the last archived copies of many of their public pages (e.g., privacy policy, developers page, etc.) are also from 2007. These pages are not blocked by the FB robots.txt and are normally accessible to anyone, so it must be by a specific request that they not be archived.

    That’s too bad. Having an easy way to see how the policies of important social sites like FB evolve would be a great resource to those who study online social media as well as to many curious users.

    It would be useful to have a website that tracked and versioned website (and perhaps financial institution, and retailers) TOS’

    These can be subphoened in court, but it would be a good bit of transparency and very pro-consumer.

    Although, I wonder if the companies could assert copyright in the TOS document, and have it taken down. Interesting.
