IANAL, but I think infringement only takes place when duplicating/distributing the works. Just having them sitting there is probably ok as long as you don't pass them on to anyone else.

Why don't you just avoid that situation and that uncertainty by executing a collaboration agreement between you before starting work?

Actually it takes place when you create the copy (hence copyright) regardless of if you distribute. Obviously if you copy something in secret and hide it under the bed your unlikely to get into trouble but it is still copyright infringement :)

Someone should always try and quote the OP when responding so we always have something to reference.

Indeed; such behavior is highly frowned upon. Do not do it again.

The new version of the site will have revision history that will prevent such things.
