I think its a bit rich of them to stop fan fiction, I mean how much money could they lose because of some small video thing doing the rounds on Youtube? its overkill.

Maybe they're so afraid Jackson will destroy the Silmarillion as well that they're stopping every attempt, to send a message Not that he could, though. I'm with Figg, this was overly strict, but I guess it's their right to stop it.

It does say something about the nature of IP control, especially a particularly valuable IP that Tolkien's name carries right now.

Save Merp for 2013!

"From him they learnt many things it were not good for any but the great Valar to know, for being half-comprehended such deep hidden things slay happiness; and besides many of the sayings of Melko were cunning lies or were but partly true, and the Noldoli ceased to sing, and their viols fell silent upon the hill of Kôr, for their hearts grew somewhat older as their lore grew deeper and their desires more swollen, and the books of their wisdom were multiplied as the leaves of the forest."

Once the Amazon show comes out they'll have no grounds for stopping fan-made stuff based on the idea that it's disrespectful...
When I was younger
I would not have believed them
though a hundred had said it
and a thousand tongues had told
that I would sink to these ways
that I would fall on these days--
the days I have fallen on
the ways I have sunk into.
