    Question Webmaster's Liability for Content Uploaded?

    Is a volunteer webmaster liable for potentially copyrighted content that a church, owners of the website, told them to upload to the website?

    Would the webmaster be liable in any circumstance?

    Does the webmaster need to get content submitters to sign a waiver of liability or something of that nature?

    If the webmaster were to have a waiver of liability or something of that nature, who would need to sign it? The trustees?

    North Carolina is the state, if that is of any use.

    There are a couple questions you have here... First of all, in most circumstances this is not something that you should be too concerned about. As an employee of the company or church, acting under their direction, it shouldn't be too big of a deal.
