The Circuit Court of Appeals at Philadelphia has affirmed the decision of the Pittsburgh Federal Court in the case of the McKee Glass Co. versus H. C. Fry Glass Co. The appeal arose from contempt proceedings brought against the McKee Co. for violation of a permanent injunction against infringement of appelant. The court approved allowing $10,000 as compensation for complainant's injuries. Error was not found in the item of $7,945 for infringing profits, but the court found that a six per cent royalty in the nature of damages should not be added thereto. It was also held that a royalty of six per cent should be charged as damages against gross sales of $5,339 on which the defendants sustained losses.
