While I can't see a problem with an archive on and Google's Terms of Use (in my opinion Item 4 is only applicable to Google-owned content like the FAQ, whereas Item 7 applies to postings), I agree with Sunanda that an explicit statement/answer from Google is desirable. I've sent an email to groups-support on 2005-01-06:
