[vox] expectation of privacy on an open mailing list?

Here's one for the aspiring lawyers out there:

I've been monitoring a list I've subscribed to - and anyone can subscribe 
- when I found this included in some of the e-mails posted to the list:

This electronic mail transmission contains confidential and/or
information intended only for the person(s) named.  Any use,
copying or disclosure by another person is strictly prohibited.
This poses an interesting question.  Can someone forward information which 
may be of interest to someone else with such a tag from an openly 
"subscribeable" list?  Is the author assuming an ability to copyright that 
doesn't exist?
