If you sign up for a list that has those licenses attached, then you
are by your agreeing to be a part of it agreeing to the licenses.
It'd be different if those licenses were added retroactively, but if
you sign up for a list, you're agreeing to abide by the list rules,
no? So I don't see this as an issue -- a user voluntarily agrees to
the licenses by signing up (and ignorance or refusing to read the
rules doesn't count as a reason to invalidate them....)
