Selling an item to one publication then selling it to another is
not the same as posting to a mailing list at all. How much do
you pay your subscribers for their posts to the mailing list?
If I post an article to this mailing list, that I wrote entirely
on my own, am I in any way restricted from posting the same
article to another mailing list? Assuming that I haven't sold
the rights to the article that I wrote and posted, am I not at
liberty to sell MY article to a publication?
