The L.A. Times weighed in today on the Tolkien vs. New Line lawsuit both in the article: Tolkien’s children fight for ‘Lord of the Rings’ gold and in the “Opinion L.A.” blog. Both the article and blog entry explore the nuances of infamous Hollywood “fuzzy” accounting and play off of each other with respect to how much, and for how long, the heirs of a copyright owner should benefit from their forebear’s rights. Definitely worth a read. Thanks to diedye for the tip.
