He added that the fact that tho movng pictures Involved were copyrighted did not save the com panics from anti-trust violations "An agreement Illegal because i suppresses competition," Stone said, "is not any less so because the competitive article is copy righted " In a dissenting opinion, Justle Roberts contended tho agreements were "not conspiracies contem plated by the Sherman act anc the holding that they are goes fa: beyond anything this court hai ever decided."
