I may be completely wrong, but to me an obligation in a contract is a
definite, explicit clause (more in the sense of "povinnost" contrary to
rights arising from a contract), whereas liability is more implicit (I think
I could even say XY is "liable" to a specific "obligation", therefore XY has
the liability arising from some obligation).
This is rather a clumsy explanation, I admit.
P.S. I also capitalize in Czech translation.

> Obligation x liability - I also use the first one in contracts and the
second for accounting issues. But sometimes they stand one by one - ...
obligations and liabilities of a party... Then I have a fun.
