New Middle-earth MMO Game In The Design Stage.....

Saul Zaentz Co.’s Middle-earth Enterprises (who was previously embroiled in a big lawsuit alongside Warner Bros. with the Tolkien estate about using its ownership of certain Middle-earth-ian elements in digital games) has struck a deal with the Hong Kong-based Leyou Technologies—or more specifically, a new studio subsidy of Leyou called Athlon Games—to create a free to play, massively multiplayer online experience “set in the world of Middle-earth long before the events of The Lord of the Rings take place.”
I wonder what rights Deceased Saul Zaentz Co.’s Middle-earth Enterprises has for a game "set before the events of either The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings". Since they have only the rights to the two books (TH and LOTR), I am guessing it has to be a rifling of the Appendices at the end of ROTK. C. Tolkien owns all rights to The Sil, HoME and everything else published afterwards (The Children of Húrin , etc.). So, earlier Third Age, evidently, as the 2nd Age might conflict with Tolkien Family Trust rights (and we know how litigious they can be).
And your little sister's immaculate virginity wings away on the bony shoulders of a young horse named George who stole surreptitiously into her geography revision.
