That would be up to a court to decide I suppose.
If you had such a screenshot and presented it to the court the argument would
no doubt be:
I made this screenshot and then got the work.
however the counterargument could be you got the work later, got in trouble
went ahead and got a screenshot somehow from someone else who had a license.
This would then become an argument about the perpetuity of the license.
However the counterargument could also be: nope, never had this and all he
had to do was to fake the screenshot.
So how do you prove that this is an actual screenshot. I suppose a third
party archive of creative commons licensed material would be sufficient
authority to defend against arguments of faking the screenshots.

This is a difficult question to answer generally (and definitively). In
the question of proof all information you can provide to the court to
prove your argument is good.
The question you pose is really one of: how much is enough. In my
opinion there can be no real answer.
