Only if you have actual knowledge that the version is indeed a
copyright violation, which would require at the very least knowing
that the material is copyrighted, knowing that it is being used
without permission, and knowing that it is not fair use.

"I think this is infringing" or "this is copied from another site,
therefore it is infringing".</blockquote> - [[OCILLA]]
