Bartsch v. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc., 391 F.2d 150 (2d Cir.) (full-text), cert. denied, 393 U.S. 826 (1968).
Appellate Court Proceedings Edit
A 1930 license of film rights in a play, when television was a known technology but its full impact not yet realized, was found to included television rights. The court held that as an experienced businessman, the licensor had reason to know of the new technology's potential and had the burden of negotiating an exception.
