The last several days have found an online firestorm surrounding a Southampton, UK pub called “The Hobbit” that our intrepid reporter Mark McBride has covered in not just one, but two excellent articles. And for this Middle-earth Network Special we are joined by lawyer, Aaron Hall to discuss trademark and copyright law. We also re-visit the ongoing legal actions taken last year against “The Hungry Hobbit” cafe with a discussion with owner, Wendy Busst, live on the show.
Middle-earth Network Specials are originally heard live on Middle-earth Network Radio and is a time for us to gather at the Bird and Baby, enjoy a pipeful of Old Toby, and to set aside a part of our day for the telling and hearing of pleasant tales by some very wonderful and honored guests here on the Middle-earth Network. We invite you to join us in the Live Event chatroom on the radio page at MyMeRadio.us each time we broadcast. Join us on our social site, My Middle-earth, for details on upcoming guests.
Theme song: “Old Toby” by Lonely Mountain Band.
