Disclaimers in submitted patches


every now and then I receive submissions (i.e. patches) by e-mail for
packages I maintain. Sometimes a disclaimer¹ is part of that message,
a text that denies me from doing certain things with that e-mail -
like copying or disclosing the message.

In my opinion using such a patch for an upload would violate that
clause and therefore might even put the Debian project in jeopardy.

Thoughts on that?


¹ In German, the word "Angstklausel" is quite common for that, I'm not
  aware of an English counterpart that describes it as well.
