80) Insulation from Liability: Substantial Non-Infringing Use "Substantial noninfringing use" is a copyright law doctrine, borrowed from patent law, (81) which was first applied in the Sony litigation, (82) but it has more recently become a recurring issue in the peer-to-peer network cases.
The court ruled that the manufacturer of a product having substantial non-infringing uses (in this case, recording TV programs for viewing at a more convenient time) is not a contributory infringer merely because some uses of the product constitute copyright infringement.
