An author knows when s/he has copied material and possibly infringed on someone's copyright, and a publisher is supposed to take "reasonable" steps to determine whether or not an author has done so.

But can a printer be held liable for such infringement? The printer's position is something like, "I was hired to print such-and-such and so I did. How would I know if it infringes on someone else's rights?"

  • Some printers and photocopiers already try to avoid money counterfeiting by identifying some pattern in some money bills. I'm not sure if this is law or manufacturers by their own. – Gabriel Diego Sep 10 '16 at 2:01
