Abstract (Document Summary)

Boosey & Hawkes, a British music publisher, said Friday that a U.S. federal court had backed its copyright lawsuit against the Walt Disney Co. over a video release of the film Fantasia. The lawsuit is related to the use of the musical composition "The Rite of Spring" by Igor Stravinsky. Boosey & Hawkes acquired the copyright to the music in 1949.
