     One general solution (though perhaps this is entering
     hammer-cracking-nut territory) may be to assert for the future that
     Humanist postings are deemed to be made with the CC-BY or CC-BY-SA
     licence [1], put a note to this effect in the list signature, and
     alert
     folk to this when they sign up.  That would assert that the text of
     the
     postings is copyrighted by the authors, but that people are free to
     reuse it as long as the source is quoted.  In this particular case,
     the
     publisher permissions checker could tick the relevant box
     straightforwardly and unambiguously.

     [1] The latter is the variant used by, for example, Wikipedia
     <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Copyrights>

     Well, I am only a minor player in this forum, but I would suggest
     that one not 'grant' any entity like Pearson a 'right' because one
     cannot predict how their lawyers might later use it to assert
     ownership of the whole archive!

     Even a clear statement that it is in the public domain might tempt
     them to ingest it into a database, add metadata and claim a 'database
     right' over the whole archive!
to this effect a CC BY-NC-SA would be suited
