Hi there,
It seems to me that there may also be a copyright problem with the
agreement, as stated. Although I am not a lawyer, my understanding of
the situation is that the author of a particular e-mail message holds
the copyright of the content of the message. If this is the case, then a
listowner is not in the position to sign away rights he/she does not
possess, unless somehow or other, people posting to a list explicitly
assign the copyright of their messages to the listowner, or agree that
their message is in the public domain. 

All the best,

Istvan
