Machinima Archive

A fascinating article by Henry Lowood on the creation and ongoing efforts at the Machinima Archive to preserve machinima and other game-related digital media as part of the overall Internet Archieve. Some fascinating information including this tidbit:
"The How They Got Game Project at Stanford plans to work with entities such as the Center for Internet & Society over the upcoming year to bring together game developers, experts in intellectual property law, and machinima creators to develop a protocol to deal with both the creation and the archival preservation of machinima."
Awesome news if it is true. Does anyone have any more information on this topic?
