Hello, I will assist you today.

As the website owner, you would be liable for any breach of copyright. This even applies if you have a website where people can post items. If someone posts something on your site that is a breach of copyright, you are still liable.

In this particular case, if you receive a copyright breach notice and have to pay compensation, then you could take action against the website designer.

Can I assist further. Here to help, if I can.
