What's a Library to Do?

Recently the New York Review of Books made available the ICRC Report on the Treatment of Fourteen "High Value Detainees" in CIA Custody. I'd guess it is under copyright. On each page it has a statement that is may not be reprinted and it is confidential. How should libraries handle this? We can't expect it to remain on the site forever. As an important document it should be preserved and made available. As a confidential report, it is not available from the Red Cross. Discussion for the ethics sessions in MLS programs.
