I was wondering about this when I saw the original e-mail.
Strings aren't code, are they? Are strings copyright? Trademarked?
What about posting a screen-shot of a BIOS setup screen? That would 
contain some of them.
How about a photo of a motherboard which contains copyright/trademarked 

Yes, lots of questions and no answers. I suppose it depends which laws
