Tolkien Estate Sues Warner Bros. Over 'Lord of the Rings' Slot Machines

Subject: Tolkien Estate Sues Warner Bros. Over 'Lord of the Rings' Slot Machines
by Trotter on 2012/11/19 23:14:39

The suit claims at least $80 million in damages from unauthorized merchandising of the Tolkien books.

Mere weeks before the release of the long-anticipated film version of The Hobbit, the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien has sued the film's producers claiming they are overstepping their rights when it comes to merchandising the property and The Lord of the Rings.


Lawyers must love these cases.
