Fry And McKellan Save The Hobbit

There was a story a while back about this pub in England called The Hobbit being sued by this company in California that owns the rights to several of Tolkien’s works for copyright infringement.  Actually, its more of a cease and desist, with request to pay a licensing fee. But things look well as Sir Ian McKellan and Stephen Fry are offering to pay the fee for the pub.
