You may have read recently that the Tolkien Estate has brought a lawsuit against Warner Bros., regarding Warner Bros.' marketing rights for Lord of the Rings and Hobbit products. Our friend Erik Wecks has written a great piece for Geek Dad at Wired.com, clarifying some of the issues at stake and suggesting why the Tolkien Estate may have felt the need to take such action.
