The HUNT FOR GOLLUM makers didn't approach the Estate [In reply to] Can't Post

But at the "Return of the Ring" event last year, the filmmakers said they did approach Saul Zaentz. As I recall, he grudgingly said they could make their film, but they could not charge anything for showing it. Also they were forced to agree that they would not make another fanfilm based on Tolkien. I'm not sure that condition could be legally binding. There still hasn't been any legal proceedings (as far as I know) that has determined whether fan-generated fics, art, films, etc. are fair use. The fact that some studios have actually run fanfic contests (as Warners did with Harry Potter) would suggest a tacit acknowledgement that such things are legal, as would the fact that so many fics exist without the studios having taken measures to have them suppressed. But it's a fuzzy area.
