Does anyone on the list know of case law in the UK or US with regard to the caching or storage of copyrighted web pages to create a corpus? Do any of you have knowledge of legal advice suggesting that culling the web to create corpora is or is not an infringement of copyright?

I'm happy to receive individual replies sent to pheacock at cambridge.org and then post a summary to the list.
