They want a trial by jury?

I'm pretty sure the app, Kingdoms of Middle Earth would be effected as well as the slot machines.
The Tolkien Estae is also pretty angry about some patents WB has for lotr based hotels and amusement parks. Well they're probably angry about that too.

I agree. People seem to forget the role he's played in the publications of Tolkien's other works.
He had the Hobbit practically written for him and lotr sent to him while serving in WWII. If any person should have veto power over Lotr, it's him.

Well, the Tolkien Estate has a pretty good case against Warner Brothers and Chris isn't likely to back down.

While I don't entirely agree with Christopher Tolkien's stance on the lotr movies, I can sympathize with his perspective. The man played a large role in the publication of Tolkien's other works. In a sense, he "gave" us the First Age. It seems that Christopher Tolkien is mostly annoyed by the commercialization of his father's world by Hollywood.
However I believe that the Estate has allowed fan works in the past. It's only when a fan work threatens to eclipse the original work and become a source material in itself that they have a problem.

The reason he hasn't gotten back to you is probably because the Merp team already has a lawyer who knows more about the situation than any of us and has explored every angle.
That, and they have a non-disclosure agreement.

There are a lot of layers to this situation.

That's the spirit. :)

Warner Brothers wants us all to lose hope and to forget about Merp, accept their supposed authority and then go out and buy Lego lotr and Guardians of Middle Earth. They'll lose against the Estate and at least 27,000 people and counting will know what they tried to do.

I don't know about a gif. But maybe just use a regular signature.

Something to that effect is productive, I think.

My bad, it was week 56. The first mod he shows is the one he makes fun of and the one that caused a mini backlash.

Let's all post comments to get his attention... and to bump the thread from the second page ;)
Angryjoeshow.com

Setch Dreskar posted a comment in the first page, saying Warner had every legal right to do this. Granted at the time he may have been right, but now that we know better someone else here should post and counter his point directly. I'd do it myself except I think it'd help Merp's image to have more than just one vocal fan in the thread posting more than everyone else.
I believe Setch Dreskar is Joe's representative in the forum. If Warner's apparent legal rights are his only objections to helping Merp, then countering that point directly may help.

He featured a mod just to make fun of it. A lot of people were mad about that.

We should try to get alchestbreach to talk about Merp.
He has a lot of subscribers so it's difficult to get a hold of him. But if we all message him, it may work.

There's certainly a large pool of mod reviewers, but mmoxreview does consistently get the most views. He could help a lot.

I only mention mmoxreview now because I saw the episode for two weeks ago had "Lord of the Rings" in the title. I clicked on the thumbnail hoping he was finally going to give Merp the spotlight. Instead he talked about some other lotr mod.
I don't get it. Why hasn't he featured Merp yet? He's clearly aware of it; when he did give it a brief mention, he said," for all those of you who are continuously messaging me about Merp...". I don't want to press the issue for fear that it may annoy him. The word "continuously" and the recent flak he's been getting about Week 55 makes me fear that's a possibility.

I guess all we can do is wait and hope he decides to feature Merp.

You know, mmoxreview never made an episode with Merp.
It's been almost two months since he said he would...

Stop right there, Criminal Scum! No one violates Merp on my watch. I'm confiscating your Cease and Desist. Now pay the Estate a fine, or it's off to jail.

Except WB is going to lose certain licensing rights soon. If Merp is under WB when it falls (metaphorically mind you), it will fall too.

I don't blame Jackson for the C&D or any of this.
I think what the Great Mungulor meant was that Jackson's films have increased the general interest in Middle Earth and by association, Merp.
Jackson has helped Merp, without knowing it.

I just saw the updated, update.
Thanks, Merp team :) and everyone else :)
You guys are going to pull through this. You're talented and it shows through your work. Merp stands to be better than Skyrim and I believe 2013 is going to be a good year for Merp.
" I look to see the Dawn.../
No one knows what the new day shall bring him." -Aragorn
I feel that's applicable here. I mean the whole C&D business was bad, I think we'll all agree to that. But maybe, because the Tolkien Estate is getting involved, it may end up helping Merp. I posted this here before, but here it is again. Wired.com
If this is a legacy issue for the Tolkien Estate, they won't back down. They will win and Warner will lose and you guys will be left with 26,000 followers. I think you guys are going to pull through this and the project will be all the better for it in the end.
Have Faith.

Great update, guys.
I've just updated all the threads I've started on various forums about Merp with it.
