In historic move, Christopher Tolkien resigns as director of Tolkien Estate
I am far from being a Tolkien nerd, but I had heard rumblings about how the family views the handling of their fathers creation in the past...I have deep respect for Christopher's vigilance of safeguarding his father's legacy, and commitment to do so.
It should be interesting going forward, reading the comments section really gives an insight into where the Tolkienites are at on the issue.
