When the license was sold, my understanding is:

* They have the rights to major character/place names, etc. for non-book purposes. There is no requirement that they follow "lore" or "canon".

* There is/was dispute on whether digital rights (electronic games) was included in the original agreement.

I am not a lawyer, and have not seen the contract or more recent agreements post-lawsuits, so take all of this with huge grains of salt.

It definitely had the feel of someone who did a quick wikipedia search to brush up on details, not someone who knows everything. I find that quite common on Antiques Roadshow, as they are working with a handful of generalists on site, they can't bring in a true expert in the single day of filming.

Mostly I liked seeing the letter itself, almost like I was the one handling it.

A fully handwritten letter to Mr. Ready (Marquette) was recently covered on Antiques Roadshow here in the USA. The following link has a short video clip of the appraisal, as well as the full text of the letter reproduced. I found it interesting!

Sad to say I let my subscription lapse. You could ask directly:

Thanks Trotter. I am following up this idea further with a few investigative threads elsewhere to see what this new discovery might shake out. More to come, hopefully!
