Another item to add to the summer reading list is the very interesting tale that Stephen Calkins of Wayne State tells of the story behind Broadcast Music Inc. v. Columbia Broadcasting System for the Eleanor Fox and Dan Crane edited Antitrust Stories (out soon by West Publishing).
ABSTRACT: In his chapter in the forthcoming book Antitrust Stories (Foundation Press, Eleanor Fox and Dan Crane editors), Steve Calkins relates the saga that included the landmark Broadcast Music case. It's a great story peopled with colorful characters and one in which amicii, both in Broadcast Music and in a predecessor case, may have helped cause the litigation to have lasting impact.
