This volume, an index-digest of the commission's decisions in proceedings to correct violations of the statutes which it is charged with the duty of enforcing, covers the period from its organization on March 16, 1915, to and including June 30, 1921. It sets forth concisely the commission's findings and rulings in each case, with annotations of Federal court decisions and recent articles and discussions in the leading legal publications. The annotations of the law cover only the leading cases decided by the Federal courts prior to April 30, 1922.
It should be remembered that this volume is intended only to be an index to the law on unfair competition. While the cases cited show the gradual judicial development of this law, and are, in the main, directly in point as to each case under which cited, yet they should be given careful individual consideration. Too much weight should not be given to the excerpts and citations in their use to support points in new cases without a careful study of the case as a whole and the application of the law embodied therein.
Attention is also directed to the fact that where "Decrees and Judgments in Federal Anti-trust Cases” is cited, such citation refers to the volume containing the decrees and judgments entered from July 2, 1890 to January 1, 1918.
. This volume was prepared and edited by Mr. Ishmael Burton of the Commission's staff.
