They don't have a valid page that conforms to the robots.txt format
documented at http://www.robotstxt.org/ and the W3C, but the page at
http://www.captaincopyright.ca/robots.txt is quite informative of their
lack of understanding of the subject matter they are attempting to "teach".

Lacking this file it is quite legitimate to assume (and courts will
likely fully agree if anyone attempts to sue) that all documents on the
site are pre-authorized to have verbatim non-commercial archives made.
While the site is still too new to show up in the search engines or
archives, the entire site contents will be available at:
This is the same as:
Where the robots.txt file doesn't disallow anyone given the mistakes
they made in the format of their exclusion (They 'might' have meant to
say "Disallow: /", but the file as authored excludes nothing).
I am copying this message to "itadmin at accesscopyright.ca", although I
don't expect their IT administrators (if they actually have any) to have
actually set up such an address.
