Some items, e.g.
Bird Call (A0138)
Advanced Skill, have features worded like:

"You may use cards that have the following icon..."

Does "you" in such cases specifically mean only the character that is using the card which has that text, or does it apply to any character which is taking part in the action?

e.g. in the case of
Bird Call
Advanced Skill, can the Music effects of any participating character's cards be used, or just those belonging to the character who has
Bird Call
Advanced Skill in their inventory?

The a closely-related question applies to the
Protective cover (A0143)
Advanced Skill (which says:
Whenever you are to lower the durability of an Item, you may lower the durability of this item instead.
): does its effect protect only items in the inventory of the character who has that card in their inventory, or those of any participating character?

That's a closely-related question, but subtly different. In that thread you said:

"You" (in any sentence of the game) refers only to the active player.


That doesn't seem correct for the case of effects like the ones provided by the skills mentioned in the top post of this thread. "You", in these contexts, seems to refers to the character who has the card in their inventory, regardless of whether they're the active character? According to page 11, the active character is not the one who activates/uses items: each character uses items only from their own inventory. What's not clear, however, is whether the "your cards" in those contexts specifically limits the character to using effects of cards in their own inventory, or whether they may apply those effects to cards in other participating characters' inventories.

You're right !
"You" refer to the player who use the card (from his inventory or hand) : active player or participating character.

The important concept is :
YOU = one player (the owner of the card)
If more than one player is involved, this is written with a sentence like "all participants ..."
