Refusal for content responsibility might leave you open for copyright
infringement, if they are using content that belongs to someone else, even
if you have no knowledge of it.
Do you have a trusted attorney that you can have a quick discussion with
about this? My legal advisor has been the "tie-breaker" on many an occasion,
and has always justified for me what was only a hunch with his legal
advice.

I see red flags :-) And having consulted in various capacities over the last
20 years, I have a good instinct for problems. I bet you do too.

Good luck!
