Copyright law? Fair Use Rule. And of course motivation matters -
commercial intent is a disqualification, as is potentially competitive
use. I fail to see how either applies here. Making the list aware that a
particular poster responds to denial of permission to communicate off-list
with increasing levels of off-list communications? Reference quoting for
purposes of public good is generally permitted.
