"By contributing to this forum you agree that your input can be included in forum backups and then distributed for free"
There is no need for the owner of the board to become the owner of the materials the users are posting or to have all rights over those materials.
It's enough for the owner (or anyone else) to have the right to make backups that include the materials posted by the users.
In any case, as you said, there are forums where the owner has all rights over the materials posted by the users and therefore they also have the right to make offline backups of their boards.
For those board owners it would be extremely useful to have some tools that help them to make backups.
