If a Creative Commons work that you reuse infringes copyright, do you break the law?

Hi keith,

Yes, it doesn't matter whether a work has a CC licence attached to it or not: if it contains infringing material then anyone who copies it with the good faith belief that they are allowed to do so, may nonetheless be liable for secondary infringement. That said, such a person would usually have a good defence if they were to be sued and should normally escape paying damages, provided they had no reason to suspect the validity of the CC licence.
