"innocent infringement"

Innocent infringement occurs when you have reason to believe that
a work you are copying is not under copyright. Having a copyright
notice attached to the work defeats such a claim. In fact, in a
just-decided case
the Fifth Circuit decided that the mere fact that songs were
available on CDs which carried copyright notices was sufficient
to defeat such a defense, whether or not the defendant ever
actually saw them.
