Uh?  This is not "someone copying the ARCHIVES". It is an automatic,
real time mirroring of the list.

The most likely explanation of the fact that there is such a mirror at
mail-archive.com is that somebody has "added The Mail Archive as a
member to your mailing list as described in the how-to-guide":

http://www.mail-archive.com

Also, according to their privacy guidelines, 

http://www.mail-archive.com/faq.html#privacy

"We comply with internet standard email headers which restrict or
prohibit archiving"

so adding those headers is something the administrators should
do. Yes, this will NOT make it impossible to publish the archives
online as a whole etc etc, but IMO you should do it anyway as a matter
of principle.
