As others have pointed out, it would probably be a mistake to do that  
unless you can be absolutely certain that all of those who post to  
the list want such a copyright statement.  There will be cases where  
it won't be appropriate.

I suspect that your intention as a list manager isn't so much as to  
assert copyright, but to disclaim responsibility.  For this you could  
just add text to the footer saying that the responsibility for the  
content of a posting belongs to the poster.
