Even worst, because the servers usually (there are exceptions) "talk"
to each other, and propagate the new keys, so every server in that
network will have that illegal jpg image.
Anyway, I think the owner of the key signed by another key which
containst an illegal picture, would be safe, because he/she can't
prevent people from signing his/her key. The ones in problems would be
the keyservers themselves, and the admins and owners of these
keyservers, and the owner of the key with the illegal picture (who
probably lives in a place where he is safe). I suppose that could lead
to litigation, but I don't know anything about legal stuff.
