That is surprising. I can understand linking directly to the files on 
the original site as long as those files match the page as it was when 
archived. I can also understand linking to dummy files. Seems like they 
would be taking a big risk if they are doing as you say.

As I remember it, the 2002 date was based on misunderstanding of the 
restored copyright term. If you take the original date published as 1940 
and a restored copyright having a 95 year term, then it will expire in 
2035.  See:
