You should ask someone about that...
No doubt they're covered by copyright, but citing them in an appropriate context should be fine. Of course I'd want some appropriate legal guidance before navigating that minefield. ;)
The ones I always laugh at are the emails with appended confidentiality agreements that I didn't enter into. Note to the world: you can't enter me into a contract unilaterally!
Sometimes I want to start putting similar contracts at the bottom of all my emails that entitle me to 50% of the recipient's salary, simply by virtue of having sent it to them. That way, those same people might "get" how absurd it is.

Re: You should ask someone about that...
As someone who is required to have a confidentiality notice in her email signature, I'd just like to point out that it's got nothing to do with what I want to have in my email. If it were up to me, it'd be name, address, phone numbers, and that's it. If that. But the legal office requires it because of the work we do. It's not to enter a recipient into an agreement (because, um, kinda tough to do that without, say, your signature, which you haven't offered, and there's generally no language there that's binding at all), it's to cover the organization's legal ass if we mistype an email address and it goes to the wrong person. If you're so offended by that, then I'd suggest avoiding emailing people who work with sensitive information, because we're all likely to have a similar statement in our emails as a result.
