It could be an easy question, but it isn't. If i create a screenshot using whatever tool it won't be legally useful, because screenshots are easily modified (through DOM manipulation or via photoshop).
My question is: Google cache or archive.org are tools that maybe could be recognized legally, but they create screenshots of the web randomly, is there a way to do this in a way that could represent a legal proof?


  • Take a screenshot and mail it to yourself. Do not open. Save it.

  • Sure it is! This is how copyright is proven by law offices all the time.

  • How would this apply to a website you control?
