$150 million Rings settlement

By Jenny Booth in The Times:
Time Warner has agreed to pay an estimated $150 million to the heirs of JRR Tolkien after a legal dispute over profits from the Lord Of The Rings films.

Christopher Tolkien, 84, and Priscilla, 80, said they sued the film company after it failed hand over a single penny from the gross revenues of the multi-Oscar-winning film trilogy, which took $2.96 billion at the box office worldwide.
The settlement came out of court, with the case due to go to court in Los Angeles next month.

  1. "Hi:

    Two things

    1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on ‘Torchwood’for our website

    2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

    The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]
    ‘Torchwood’one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

    What’s in it for you?
    Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.
