Valenti praises gov’t cable suit

Motion Picture Assn. of America prez Jack Valenti on Tuesday hailed the U.S. Dept. of Justice’s recent lawsuit against two cable TV companies accused of failing to make more than $ 2.4 million in copyright royalty payments to Hollywood studios.

Justice last week filed suit against Suburban Cable TV Co. and its parent, Lenfest Communications, both of Pottstown, Pa.

Valenti said the “entry of the government into the field with its power to use the anti-fraud statutes will, we hope, make cable operators pause before continuing to file false statements (regarding cable royalty payments).”
