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.

Keywords: Antitrust, amicus, per se rule, rule of reason, quick look
