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.
