Government and Law

By Eric Hoyt

The history of the American media industries is intertwined with the histories of American politics and law. The media industries have been both empowered and constrained by numerous laws, including copyright, censorship, and antitrust. At certain points in history, Hollywood has sought to influence politics and the development of laws. However, the same visibility that gives Hollywood cultural influence has made it a frequent target of governments determined to leave their own mark on culture.

The “Government & Law Collection” contains transcripts, decisions, and proceedings that chart the interplay between Hollywood, politics, and law. The collection includes extensive documentation relating to the House Committee on Un-American Activities’ infamous investigations into communists in Hollywood. Documents concerning economic regulation, censorship, and juvenile delinquency can also be found on this page. Most of the items in this collection were published by the U.S. Government Printing Office and digitized by the Internet Archive.

These seven volumes contain the testimonies and supporting documents from the U.S. District Court's antitrust lawsuit against the Motion Picture Patents Company (MPPC). Formed in 1908, the MPPC (sometimes referred to asœ"the Edison Trust" or just "the Trust") sought to control the American film industry through pooling patents and demanding that producers and exhibitors acquire licenses to those patents. Independent producers and exhibitors, who refused to license the patents, argued that the MPPC was an unlawful monopoly. In 1912 and 1913, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania heard testimonies from both MPPC members, such as Siegmund Lubin, and "Independents" who later became Hollywood moguls, such as William Fox. Ultimately, in 1915, the case reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which found the MPPC in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act and spelled the end for the already weakening MPPC. -- Eric Hoyt, 2012
