    This is exactly the reason why there is no copyright issue for Seesat-L
    as far as photography goes. No images are ever posted to this list.
    People only post links to their own sites or to third-party hosters, and
    whatever terms of use apply with the respective hoster they choose is
    their problem alone. You can post links and pointers to images all you
    want, further storage of those images elsewhere is of no concern to
    Seesat-L at all. There is no need to worry about archiving all those
    images. That's entirely up to the original creator and poster, as it is
    their responsibility to keep them online if they want to have people
    looking at them.
