I'm usually the one who reacts sharply to that [il]legal nonsense in
e-mail footers. I usually write my position about it to the best of my
English language abilities, so the sender of the message has somebody's
else writing about legal nonseseness of it which he/she can pass over to
the ones in charge who ordered the footer and hence can revert the
decision. And I do my best to indeed reveal the feeling of the person who
does read that footer and comprehends what is being said, thus to
encourage the sender to indeed pass the message on up the ladder...

Cheers ;-)
