AFAICT, the footer in question tries to make it illegal for us even to
have the message in our mail archives.  If I were running the PG lists,
I would install filters that automatically reject mails containing such
notices, with a message like "Your corporate lawyers do not deserve to
have access to the internet.  Go away until you've acquired a clue."

I fully support Bruce's demand that patches be submitted with no such
idiocy attached.
