Hosting old WotC site materials

As time and editions progress, old items are eventually removed from the Wizards site. 

Suppose that some "random theoretical person" spent a lot of free time over the space of years downloading entire public sections of said website: the html files, the zip files, the pdfs, the images, and so forth - to create a collection of all the public website materials relating to the 3.x edition (ie: no Insider content) for personal gaming use. 

How would said "random theoretical person" go about obtaining permission to host and offer for download the entire collection as is, in a (not-so) compressed file; so as to not trip over the invisible, deceased, non-existant turtles of law and legality?  

As a separate question, it was noticed that the Internet Archive now has the entire collection of Dragon magazines... is that legit and on the up and up? This one is curious as to the story behind that.
