    • Abstract:
      Arbitration literally rescued from chaos and, trebled the possibility of swift and helpful expansion in the motion picture industry. A motion picture is one of the most perishable products on earth. Its value is at the highest pitch only for the few months immediately following the promotional activity which is so vital a part of the industry. A man who thought he had a prior right to a certain film in his territory had the recourse of suing if the distributor thought otherwise. An exhibitor or a distributor can submit any dispute to the arbitration board nearest to the theatre affected and secure an award within ten days or two weeks.
