;,The supreme court today held Invalid
the restrictions eoujht by the Motion
IMcture Uateuts, Company. on the use
of competitors' films in its projecting
machines, the supreme court refusing
to allow an Infrlngment injunction
against the Universal Company. -Application
of the, Clayton antitrust

' Company againtt the Universal Film

sal Film , Exchange, and the Prague
Amusement Co, of New;Torkv , in re
' fusing an infrinjment Injunction" the
.circuit court held that to uphold the
patents company's prohibition against
use of competitor's films in its project
ing machines would give the' socalled
.moving plctdre trust an "absolute mo
I nopoly cf the film business.'
The suit was entirely distinct from
federal proceeding, brought under
tiie Sherman law against patents com
pany and others to dissolve an alleged
-combination popularly known. .in the
film 'w orld, as the" Moving - Picture
Trust. In seven other, suits $18,250,
Oto damages under the Sherman law
. are asked by western film companies.
-Under the court's rulings in other
cases the Motion Picture Patents Com
pany contended . its licensed sale restrictions-were
valid. - -
