Who makes the playback copies?
Causation/volition:¬
―There must be actual infringing conduct with a nexus
sufficiently close and causal to the illegal copying that one
could conclude that the machine owner himself trespassed on
the exclusive domain of the copyright owner."
―the purpose of any causation
-based liability doctrine is toidentify the actor (or actors) whose "conduct has been sosignificant and important a cause that [he or she] should belegally responsible."
Prosser and Keeton on Torts
§ 42, at 273(5th ed.1984)
