WVC 47 - 11 D- 1
The purpose of this article is to establish fair and open
procedures for bidding and negotiating for the exhibition of
motion pictures within this state in order to prevent unfair and
deceptive acts or practices and unreasonable restraints of trade
in the business of motion picture distribution within the state;
to promote fair and effective competition in that business; and
to benefit the movie-going public by holding down admission
prices to motion picture theatres, expanding the choice of motion
pictures available to the public, and preventing exposure of the
public to objectionable or unsuitable motion pictures by ensuring
that exhibitors have the opportunity to view a picture before
committing themselves to exhibiting it.
