I doubt that a listowner can give away a subscriber's copyright with a
notice like the one listed above.  Both parties must agree to the
terms of a contract for the contract to be valid.  I ask subscribers
to get permission from the original author before republishing
articles from the mailing list.  I don't know the details of law in
this area.  Contacting the author for permission to republish is
common courtesy.  Getting permission to redistribute an article is a
trivial task in most cases.
