Gene Buck, the Will Hays of the songwriters Of tin pah alley, I*, the central ilgure In the se'cond case,' Involving the''right of hotels to pick up radio programs broadcast in violation of the copyright laWs and "rebroadcast" them' for their guests without paying copyright fees. The WOY case, decided by the supreme court last week after nearly a year of' deliberation, did not raise either of these Issues. It merely Interpreted the existing radio law at It relate* to the administrative powers of the radio eomm!i»ton, and the court of appeals of the District of Columbia. Which it established definitely as a "VNUper" radio- commission. cnlcago's case represents a contest between stationi which rank ftmortff the..™j'remo8i' In 'the 'country. WLS la asking the sUpreme court--to review-the decision of the court of appeals, here, oh the grouhd that the lower court's* decision' destroyed a deli- jilts property right , It had, In violation of the Constitution. WLS, in this decision, waa forced to relinquish, to WfiNR a poi-tlorf of.. Its time :on the air. The frfrny station had operated five-sevenths x>f th* tlmt-on the 870 kilocycle channel, and the Insull station two-seventh* The, court, last winter, ordered the stations to share time equally. WL$ claims, that as a result of the actlori It has lost heavily in advertising contracts. ' Moreover, It Contends the court did not hold Its programs Were "Inferior" to those of, WBNB, but they were "equal." Consequently It argues, through Harry E. Kej»y. Its attorney, that the lower court took a portion of Its properly "without due process of law." . ,.<"' The right of f/Vt,S .,16 .appeal from the appeals court's, ; •'fieclslon actually expired a month.ago. But special dls- pennatlon was obtained from Justice Oliver, Wendell Holm'es by virtue of the fact that the WQY. case was pending, and that tho station did not know lust what course to pursue until th« decision In this case was rendered. A' new phase of the conflict between song-writers and broadcasters involving musical copyrights on songs played Over the air ,1s brought to the court for judgment In the Buck case. Specific questions which the circuit court of appeals at Kansas City was unable to decide as submitted to tho court.. They grow out of throe copyright violation cases each Involvng otatlon KWKC, at Kansas City, Mo,, and the Jpwell Lasalle Realty com r puny/operated by the La Salle hotel there, for injunction and damages for infringement of copyright. Buck, as presldentj of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, representing about 700 songwriters, who organized to protect the performing rights of their mtisMial works against Infringement, wottflln the lower court from the broVBcasting station. He contended tho station had broadcast, without the consent of the copyright owners, the song "Just Imagine" in 1928, and that tho hotel had reproduced It through a master receiving set and distributed it throughout the hotel. The hotels however, won in tho lower court, and Buck appealed to the cirouij court, which in turn, now aylcn the supremo court to establish whether the hotel Itself is liable under the copyright laws. Specifically, the question la whether tho act of reproducing tho copyrighted inusio from the station actually constituted a "per- formancd" of, tho composition within tho meaning of the copyright laws.
