If you can't even say within a factor of 10 how much it was, I don't consider that any of us actually have any real knowledge of this "substantial amount."(4) Don't be misled by the squeaky wheel syndrome: there are many acts of generosity in the granting of permissions that don't get much attention, while the times when they say "NO" tend to get a lot of attention.Give me some examples of these many acts of generosity in the granting of permissions. If you can't give me at least as many examples of these acts as there are of them suing people for supposedly violating the copyright and/or trademark, I don't agree that there have been "many acts."Wendell Wagner
- Doug,You are excused, sir. I’ve hoped to see Michael Drout’s edition for about ten years now. I imagine Michael has, too.Is there any progress on an edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s poetry with commentary? Such a thing has been spoken of since Peter Jackson was a sunspot on the far horizon.MikeWhoops! That was meant to be a private message. Sorry about that."Let's hope Tolkien's Beowulf will follow."Dreamer! If there is one action of the Tolkien Estate that I really don't understand, it is blocking Drout's work on this. But have you seen any indication that they have reversed course?Doug
