An addendum

An addendum [In reply to] Can't Post

I was just looking at the Christopher Tolkien interview in Le Monde for another purpose, and I noticed this quote from the Estate's former attorney, Cathleen Blackburn:

"We are in the back seat," Cathleen Blackburn comments. In other words, the Estate can do little but watch the scenery, except in extreme cases-- for example, preventing the use of the name Lord of the Rings on Las Vegas slot machines, or for amusement parks. "We were able to prove that nothing in the original contract dealt with that sort of exploitation."

This article was originally published in July 2012, some four months before the lawsuit was filed. It is unclear exactly when the interviews took place, but it appears from that quote that at least at that point they were convinced that they had proven their point about the slot machines.

'But very bright were the stars upon the margin of the world, when at times the clouds about the West were drawn aside.'
