7.31.2006

Accordingly, this Court must be vigilant in assessing the effects of the prominent vertical integration in this case, as Defendants are both exhibitors and distributors and the merger places them within the same company. Defendants represent a unique entity. To understand the precise structure of this entity, this Court must consider Defendants in their entirety. To do otherwise would be shortsighted. Defendants are indeed the sum of all their parts, and they cannot evade scrutiny by partitioning themselves. Pieces of a puzzle viewed separately form unintelligible, irregular shapes, but considered together reveal a discernible [*82] image. n41 Thus, to allow fragmentation to provide an escape from responsibility would be to deal in illusion. This Court sees right through the cellophane fence that Defendants attempt to hide behind.
