It's an interesting idea, but since copyright was not designed, and has never been used, to protect confidentiality, I see nothing but frustration.
A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) would make a lot more sense. In order to get Bob's posts, Alice would have to agree to restrictions on reposting them. I don't know how information travels around in these systems; maybe it isn't feasible to make an NDA a prerequisite for accessing the information.
