      Hi all:

      Interesting news: eGroups has been bought by Yahoo.

      http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/000628/ca_yahoo.html

      What's interesting about the change is Yahoo's position on ownership of
      Intellectual Property and Copyrights. Their TOS section 8 sounds pretty
      airtight, and they have a history of enforcing their position.

      So, if you plan to publish something in a magazine/book, take note.
