Hi, it's me again. I think this argument is backward -- I agree that list
members can't place wierd restrictions on their individual messages, but in
this case eGroups is demanding from the list owner rights that it's not at
all clear that any of his list members have assigned him.
If you sign up for a list that has those licenses attached, then you
are by your agreeing to be a part of it agreeing to the licenses.
It'd be different if those licenses were added retroactively, but if
you sign up for a list, you're agreeing to abide by the list rules,
no? So I don't see this as an issue -- a user voluntarily agrees to
the licenses by signing up (and ignorance or refusing to read the
rules doesn't count as a reason to invalidate them....)
