WVC 47 - 11 D- 1 §47-11D-1. Purpose.
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.
