There's a big difference between a single list subscription and
total redistribution to an undisclosed number of users. That's
a blatant copyright violation, and any Internet lawyer will back
Each list that I maintain says in the .info file that users posting
messages retain all rights to whatever copyrights they may hold.
I suggest adding something like this.
If findmail.com ever tries archiving our lists, they'll find themselves
slapped with a class action suit on behalf of the list subscribers
faster than they can say 'unsubscribe.' But just to be on the safe
side, I'm blocking findmail.com from all SMTP transactions. :)
