I received the message below from someone circulating information in this group, and the quoted segment below has no force in law that I know, and it is a wonder that people still use it;— in that it seeks prior restraint acting to suppress repetition IS against the law! The phrase ‘may be considered advertising’ is particularly egregious, since after stating what the message is not, it still does not state what it is, and who ‘may’ consider it advertising, that is, if any message from the source may or may not be advertising, and since unwonted spamming is against the law, and since communications may also mislead, saying that they can be misleading would be no defense in law. From a publishing point of view arrangements for confidentiality are the same as with lawyers — that it must be a mutual up-front agreement. I mention all these things since messages of this type may seem to offer an insulation against the result of circulating information, whereas to the best of my knowledge such a statement provides none whatever — with result that this can lead to a false or reduced sense of security —nor has anyone been successfully sued for contradicting terms stated in such messages, since the information is freely volunteered to others.
