This folder contains two U.S. Supreme Court opinions of April 9, 1917. The first pertains to the suit brought by the Motion Picture Patents Co. against the Universal Film Manufacturing Co. and other defendants for infringement of Woodville Latham's U.S. Patent 707,934. The second relates to the suit brought by Jesse Isidor Straus and other plaintiffs against the Victor Talking Machine Co. Both opinions became legal precedents, barring the license agreements used by the Motion Picture Patents Co. and Thomas A. Edison, Inc., to fix prices and otherwise limit the use or sale of their products. Both opinions contain marginal notations, some probably by Edison.
