If a client signs a document that claims to have licensed the material, it is up to you to do the due dilligence and verify the veracity of the document. If you accept, "bald-faced" the document and it turns out to be false, then you get to be a party in the action. Worst case for you if it turns out to be false is a hefty fine...the minimum will be a trip to court and some days of scrambling over paperwork...still more hassle than it's worth.

Let me repeat this...again...

There is no such thing as a release of liability or a liability waiver...PERIOD! You can lessen your liability in the above scenario, but only if you do your homework and verify the legitamacy of a document of that type.

You don't want a want a reciept showing a billing or payment for the use from the rightsholders or a clearinghouse.
