Don't take this the wrong way, but this isn't an email, it's a usenet

I'm also not the "individual or entity to which it is addressed" because
I read it from a news server and it was addressed to "comp.lang.python".

Then you would do well to not publish it in a public forum.

So if this /were/ actually an email you've just given permission for an
admin of any mail server the email passes through to disseminate or copy

For those not aware:


Verb:  disseminate - cause to become widely known; "spread information";
"circulate a rumor"; "broadcast the news"

Unlawful how? You've already given permission for an "agent responsible
for delivering the message" to broadcast it around the world.

Sorry for the rant, but I'm an email admin and I've just been told about
the change to UK law.

I'm giving our legal department even more grief.
