Under American copyright laws, if a person writes something, she has the

copyright; i.e., there's no implied waiver of copyright (at least not by

subscribing to an email list).	Tuffley is correct to be worried about
legal implications.  The easiest thing to do would probably be for him
offer to "buy" any ideas that he wants to use for $1, which would 
probably protect him.  Alternatively, he might note that unless GZG 
starts making a whole lot of cash, it's unlikely that any one is going
have a financial incentive sufficient to override their morals.
