Comment Re:politically motivated translation? (Score 2) 49

Here's a link to a Russian article on the matter. http://ria.ru/economy/20130430/935405025.html

According to the article he states that:
1. This ban is a clear example of unfair competition. (using political means)
2. That they (the Russians) will have to work with the Europeans so that they can make their own independent decisions.

Something else intersting from that article is that the Minister of Economic development stated that t-platforms is competing with American and Chinese companies in the European market. I consider this strange since the US mentioned Taiwan but there is no pressure against Chinese companies.

Comment Re:Doesn't the Tolkien estate... (Score 1) 211

I could be wrong here but didn't JRR Tolkien sign away the rights to LoTR and The Hobbit movies when he was still alive? Some American company if I remember correctly. Christopher tolkien was against the movies getting made but they still did them despite what he wanted.
I guess this is why we will never get to see a movie based on the Silmarillion (the Tolkien estate still has the rights to that) :(
