This is quite an interesting area.

In one sense yes they are a breach of copyright, as you are taking a very quality image of the original cover and reproducing it as a high quality image. The cover images of the books are copyrighted by the book publishers and The Tolkien Estate.

In another sense they may not be in breach of copyright, if you marry the facsimile dustjacket with an original book that has lost its original wrapper, that this is a facsimile of.

The book was originally sold with a dustjacket that has been lost and you have replaced it with a copy of its original wrapper. I think it is probably difficult to argue breach of copyright in this example.

I recently bought a facimile dustjacket for the Hobbit offf Ebay the other day and I began wondering about the legallity of reproducing and seling these.

Does anyone know if this is breach of copyright or not?

If my memory serves me correctly, the winner was Valhalla??
It was a good price and I should have made the effort to go after it myself.

www.tolkien.co.uk is back again, hardly any difference from before, but the FAQ has changed indicating that the books are not numbered.

Does seem odd that a whole site has to be taken down for a couple of weeks to change a couple of pictures and a couple of lines of text.

Yes, Remy, I agree that it shouldn't require some super aggressive marketing (like put them on Amazon) to sell these out within the next 6 to 12 months. The problem with selling them is that you actually have to have a functioning website in order to sell product. It seems that providing such a site has proven difficult for HC. I suppose I could see them continuing to discount the book for some time (maybe even reduce the price to 300GBP) in order to move the last hundred or so.
