I don't see where you get that from?
The disclaimer follows a pretty standard corporate pattern
that simply tries (usually unsuccessfully) to protect
corporate IP.

>>> ==========

It may. It may not. This particular email apparently does not.
Nothing unusual there. It's vague to the point of being useless
but it does not claim ownership of anyone's IP but their own.

>>> It is intended only for the use of the individual or entity to which

So in this case the mailing list is the entity. But the claim is true of 
most emails. We expect them to go to the entity to which we send them. 
We may not want them shared publicly or widely.

>>> If you are not the
>>> intended recipient, you are not authorized to read, retain, copy, print,

Again that's pretty general. You are not authorized by the sender to 
read the message. It doesn't prevent you from doing so but they aren't 
authorizing it and any action an unauthorized viewer takes can therefore 
be challenged in court. That's all it means, they have the option of 
challenging. It's akin to a copyright statement.
But since the list members are part of the entity addressed it doesn't 
apply to us in this case.

>>> If you have received this communication in
>>> error, please notify the sender and delete all copies of this message.

Again a reasonable request since it potentially implies a security issue 
for the corporation.

>>> Persistent Systems Ltd. does not accept any liability for virus infected
>>> mails.

This is the only bit that is not reasonable. If Persistent Systems sends 
a virus infected email out it is there responsibility. If their systems 
are infected they are liable.

But I don't see anything too outrageous about the disclaimer. The 
corporate banner we used to have was equally banal and said much
the same stuff.
