Liability Concerns

What is the legality around providing storage space for third party files? Who is liable if the data stored on the computer turns out to be illegal? For example, if it was illegal music or video files, pirated software or worse? Is there some kind of indemnification?

This has been asked many times and produced some heated debates, but the short of it is that you cannot know what is stored on your PC and a reasonable man test would show you had no intent without any other reason to believe so.
