As a member of this community, I will support the host's privilege to upload content. I will also comply with any legal fallout except paying fines and royalties. I'll even support removing the content of the host should the copyright holder request that properly with a DMCA takedown notice. 

Is that accepting legal responsibility? Probably not, I'm just thinking back to the older days of RFA and TWAT. They would have posted it.
