Toys, yes; Video games, no

According to THR, Warner Bros. and the Tolkien Estate have "amicably resolved" their five-year-long dispute over the digital exploitation of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. As far as I can tell, this seems to be a fight over merchandising: witnesses were called over issues ranging back to a contract signed in 1969(!!!), and both sides must have shelled out millions in legal fees, so I seriously doubt that anyone is feeling particularly amiable... except, of course, for their lawyers.
