We hear fromThe Hollywood Reporter,that the Tolkien estate and Harper Collins have slapped an $80 million lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. The plaintiffs claim that Warner Bros., its New Line subsidiary and Rings/Hobbit rightsholder Saul Zaentz Co. have infringed their copyright and breached a contract.

Mere weeks before the release of the first film in the long-anticipated big-screen adaptation of The Hobbit, the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien has sued the film's producers, claiming they are overstepping their rights when it comes to merchandising the property and The Lord of the Rings.

You can read, and download in PDF, the full copy of the lawsuit here.
