Archive.org–Brewster Kahle says “We’ll host MP3 archives.”

Maybe Vivendi and CNET will take Brewster up on his offer to have Archive.org save the MP3.com site files. In a story in The Register, Brewster is quoted as saying “Our approach is to provide unlimited bandwidth forever for free. There’s no amount of material that frightens us. MP3.com’s collection is five terabytes. No sweat. We’ve been adding forty terabytes a month.”
Is this a real story–ie, is Brewster talking to Vivendi and CNET, or is this one of those journalist–manufactured ‘what if ‘pieces?
Seems more like the latter, courtesy of Andrew Orlowski, but it’s still a neat idea.
