What do you guys think of this one?

It seems strange to me that Tolkien would have signed this. Has anyone seen anything like it before?

This is what should really be at the bottom of this listing

"To Whom It May Concern (inc. Ebay’s VeRo Team and The Publishers Association).

Kindly take note that these recordings are from the Writer’s Original Work. They are read by Modern Readers who have not placed these recordings in The Public Domain. They ARE copies of "copyrighted commercially available recordings" and as such they infringe every copyright and are not in accord with any Ebay policy"

Have a look at this!!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/J-R-R-TOLKIEN-C ... ks_GL?hash=item23058f4811

I'm sure the seller (who made a lot of effort to get a metal case), has also got permission from all the rights holders involved to sell this item and is paying royalties.

I don't understand why eBay gets away with allowing these listings and the recent pathetic typewriter listing and this nonsense at the bottom of the listing, absolute rubbish as far as I can see.

"To Whom It May Concern (inc. Ebay’s VeRo Team and The Publishers Association).

Kindly take note that these recordings are from the Writer’s Original Work, which is now in The Public Domain. They are read by Modern Readers who placed these recordings in The Public Domain. They ARE NOT copies of any other "copyrighted commercially available recordings" and as such they do not infringe any copyrights but are in full accord with Ebay’s policy"

The signature looks good to me. Another option would be to sell it on eBay.
