Copyright

Various letters concerning the rights to film the play Wildfire. Swarts is buying the rights from T. Hays Hunter and wants, and gets, a waiver of copyright interest from Press Publishing Co., who published the story in 1908. A handwritten postscript from Smith to Krock (10-15-1924) mentions that "the general copyright situation is bad and we hope to put through Congress a modern Copyright bill."
