Nonsense, there's caselaw that says that letters sent from person A to B
were owned by A, because B wanted to publish them when A became famous.
I forget the specifics, but it's been decided.
That is why I said *arguable*. I don't think anyone's argued the email case,
but the physical mail case has precedent.
Don't wave "fair use" so broadly. It really isn't that broad.
