Well, except for some of us more obsessive types, everyone in the US in
on holiday break right now.  But to respond to your other question, the
studios were forced to divest themselves of their theater holdings after
the 1948 Paramount case decision by the US Supreme Court.  See Tino
Balio's THE AMERICAN FILM INDUSTRY, among others, for more details.  My
own web server is down right now, but you should be able to find a
number of sites online that mention the case as well.

Hi, is this list still alive? ;-)

Remember it as not so quiet when I was subscribed some years ago.

Anyway, I am working on the WIPO-treaties, DRM, DMCA etc, you will know
the DeCSS cases, and I have one question, sotosay a legal one:

In Monaco, Understanding Cinema (?), in german "Film Verstehen", there
is
a short passage on a time, where the studios were no longer allowed to
own
the cinemas. After WW2.

Would like to know more but have no idea where to look.
