Thanks for the info. I like the cover, and the picture suits the material, I think.

I want to purchase things listed on this website. I've sent several inquiries via email and web-form but have gotten no reply.

At first I thought the admin might be on vacation, but its been more than a month (and I've sent at least 4 or 5 request for different items throughout this month). Also, its been about a year any articles have been posted. Any info? Advice?


Haven't seen any updates there for a long while. You could contact David Miller at TolkienBookshelf, potentially, with regards to stuff from the shop.

This view out of my lounge window always reminds me of "The Hill", especially late spring, when everything is green.

Well, except for the mountains behind...

They will not be working into the next millennia, the Tolkien Estate's copyright on items that are J.R.R. Tolkien copyrighted, does not last for ever, only eight years left in some parts of the world.

Canada and New Zealand are examples where due to current copyright laws, anything written by J.R.R. Tolkien would be public domain on the 1st January 2024, as it would 50 years after his death, i.e. he could sell the rings with no license payment after this date in Canada or New Zealand.

The reason that it is not 2023 is that it is the end of the year after the 50th Anniversary.

I think this is why they are stepping up the enforcement, which they are allowed to do, and rightly so as they own the copyright, but also they have a limited time left.



New Zealand is a signatory to the TPP (and therefore has thrown its citizens under the bus). Under TPP, copyright will be extended substantially, and realistically, works will probably never go into the public domain (some works are going to come back out of the public domain, which is interesting).

Australian.

I've got one of their passports, and I've lived a life of dishonest chicanery ever since.
