I should clarify. I know that copyright is owned by the author by
default, at least in Europe. However, I would assume that this is
not the case worldwide. Anyway, I am not at all good with copyright
law, and I don't mean to claim so. In any case, the author of an
archived list post is not trivially determinable, which may be
a problem in certain legislations.

Thanks to Jeroen for pointing it out to me to go read Copyright 101.

Please do not CC me when replying to lists; I read them!
