This is a topic that caused quite a stir on the WRITERS-L list. A lawyer
gave a very long winded opinion that seemed to say there are a few
problems with first serial rights and copyright. I think you're safe
because you just paraphrased your findings and did not post your paper

The lawyer suggested that you should tell a publisher what you
posted and let them decide. Most publishers don't know from listserv and
probably don't care. Some may err on the side of caution and consider it

I think the best way to view this forum, is as a workshop and
not as a published journal. No one would put on their resume that they
have been published in TECHWR-L.
