Is the MPAA a ‘Price-Fixing Cartel?’

The Supreme Court has said that competitors (like movie studios) have the First Amendment right to band together to advocate for their interests. But, as Thomas Edison learned in 1915, the studios, as a collective, are not allowed to set prices or carve up territories under US antitrust law.

So what about a licensing scheme - agreed to by all the studios - that prevents the fair-use copying of DVDs?
