DHitMA: Protocols of Online Data Preservation

Providing a link (to a YouTube video, a Pastebin, etc.) is not enough, especially for data that one believes to be potentially "naughty" to the eyes of those who control the Web (this means anything politically dissident in nature). The best remedy to this is provided as follows:

  1. Download the media you would like to share through some means and save it locally
  2. Upload the media to the Web through an appropriate means (archive.org, archive.is, etc.)
  3. Share both links to the recipient
