Simon on the other hand....
If the Amazon series does well, it wouldnít surprise me if certain members of the estate were contacted by various corporate conglomerates asking to say change the will or sell the rights to the Silmarillion, having developed the notion the Tolkien family or at least its younger members have no interest in keeping the IP under their ownership either indefinitely or whenever it enters public domain.

Itís happened before with other estates.

I donít expect anything like the above will happen for at least the next five years.

But I am genuinely worried the doors may have swung open to the silmarillion being adapted.
