At Archipel, EPrints-based Université du Québec à Montréal's IR, in part to satisfy other very cautious law-abiding people (I'm speaking of University lawyers), instead of being asked to explain the rationale of his or her request (as in UTAS ePrints Repositoy, which perhaps uses the standard ePrints text), the requester is informed that a statement will be joined to the e-mail sent to the author explaining that the copy is intended for research, private study, review or critical purposes, or for any other use permitted by Canadian Copyright Law.
I imagine this could help alleviate the unfounded but, I agree, commonly encountered fears of the type described above.
