There are severe problems with copyright law. Doesn't change whether
or not you broke it.

Why not? I see little reason why someone from another culture would
suspect that some particular activities are illegal in the town I live.
Ignorance is not an excuse. It might bring a reduced penalty, though.

I guess posting common myth understanding of copyright might even
be a public service, letting others argue that they are ignorant
because they believed it...
