forum disclaimer

What is a good forum disclaimer? For example if I own a photo forum where people post photos. How do I know if they did not post any copy righted photo? can I get into trouble because of that? Or is having a good disclaimer enough?

It rather depends on what jurisdiction you are in.

Actually the big risk is not being taken to court but having your service provider pull the rug from under your site in the event of a complaint or DCMA notice direct to them. This does happen.
