Liability

Not sure if this has been discussed before, if it has please point me to the correct thread for my reading and learning enjoyment.

If you hold a CG OUPV license at what point in time does any liabilities to you come into play. example: 1. You are an invited guest on someones boat ( power/ sail doesn't matter) for a enjoyable afternoon. Do you have any unintended or assumed liabilities because of your license if something goes wrong?
2. similar situation - you are crewing for someone ie; rail meat, sail trimmer, etc. same question
In both of these examples you were never asked to be skipper, captain, or in command.
Come on lets hear some thoughts.
