Ignorance is not a legal defence in any country.
If found to be publishing items in breach of copyright the defendant would still be liable. Even if they *thought* what they were publishing was correctly licensed.
It is the responsibility of the publisher to check the legality of all media thoroughly before distribution.
EDIT: There is no such thing as deferred responsibility WRT copyright.
