Although the topic of copyrights, etc. wrt FAQs 
and USENET postings is one that's worn fairly thin
by now, what is the current thinking on the
content of mailing list traffic? Who *does* it
belong to? Is it public domain? Can it even be
considered email, even though email channels 
are used to distribute it? 

What about alternative, electronic archives of 
list traffic?  What about a very selective
archive in which your material (and several other 
interesting contributions) has singled out for
"archive" storage?

Newspapers (real ones, with lawyers) already quote
USENET postings, but email list traffic, once it starts
to become the dominant mode of interchange as USENET
slowly chokes to death, will be a much more productive
mine for primary source material.

Does anyone here coyright hir list's traffic? 

++Tony, really not interested in a copyright flame war
        as much as seeing from others' experiences 
        whether its already time to batten down the hatches.
