    I really want to run multi authors wordpress blog. What if one of the writers posts articles or images which are being copyrighted? Am I getting in trouble by those posts I don't write when the owners take legal actions to my multi author blog?

    I'm not a lawyer, but if you have copyrighted material on your domain, you're to blame. I think the only way is to have a solid DMCA policy explaining you have no input into the author's content.

    Being said, solid DMCA policy can cover me if something goes wrong with my blog.
