No, it is not misleading. Almost all of the lawsuit is about controlled digital lending, with the COVID relaxing being an example of the things people could do while managing a CDL system. And the publishers were already objecting to CDL before COVID.

The end goal for the publishers is definitely the removal of CDL, not punishing the IA for the pandemic actions.

I agree.

I don’t understand why they took this risk. The internet archive is a great resource, why did they pick this digital lending hill to die / risk all that on?

It seems irresponsible.

They're arguing that the IA's library isn't even a library.
