Well not always.  It depends on the purpose of the list.  I am associated 
with two private, 'by invitation only' lists.

Our policy is that the copyright belongs to the original author of the post.
Messages are *not* to be distributed outside of the list without the
expressed consent of the copright holder (author.)

Reuse or redistribution of posts from the list (without getting permission 
from the author) is grounds for unsubscription.  

Notice that we, as operators of the listserv, 
also do not claim to have any copyright on the material..... the rights 
belong exclusively to the original author.

Sooooo... the policy may vary depending on whether the list is 
intended to be public or private
