Archived Web Page Held Admissible as Evidence

From the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society:

In a Northern District of Illinois case, a judge held that the archived copies of a web site (taken from the Wayback Machine) "were not themselves statements susceptible to hearsay exclusion, since they merely showed what [plaintiff] had previously posted on its site. [The judge] also noted that, since [plaintiff] was seeking to suppress evidence of its own previous statements, the snapshots would not be barred even if they were hearsay. "
