there is no single answer to this. it would depend on national laws
(which vary) and it would depend on the particular case at hand. there
are examples i can imagine where in US law, the derived work would
immediately become as illegal as the initial work, but the
distributor(s) of the derived work would not have any liability. there
are other examples i can imagine where they clearly would.
