I have to disagree. The only thing I can think of that would have been
more appropriate would have been to get a lawyer to come up with a bunch
of legalese framing an adequate disclaimer - and charging the original
poster for the legal costs involved.
People running things like this mailing list not only have the right to
comment as they see fit on what they see as inappropriate content, they
also have a legal responsibility to keep it within the law.
Not only was Pedro offering bootlegged copyrighted software, his post
solicited payment for one version. Brett's concern for the legal
ramifications was simple common sense, and hopefully created an adequate
defense in case the owners of that copyright ever come knocking.
