Why not sending out an text on list subscription where the subscriber
agrees that his emails will be set under a special license like the Open
Content which states that the original author has to be named which is
the case inthe archive as the "From:" line is shown.

I dont like this idea.

In software we prefer open source and most people even like the GPL
whereas your contribution to a project is automatically set under the
GPL. Why not doing the same for the list archive. Its a contribution
to the Debian Project and IMHO we should treat it the same.
