Still Waters Posted February 4 #1 Share Posted February 4 (IP: Staff) · A waste collection firm in Brighton has been told by lawyers for the Lord of the Rings franchise to change its name. Lord of the Bins collects household, building and office waste across East Sussex and West Sussex. Nick Lockwood and Dan Walker, who run the company, said they were contacted by Middle-earth Enterprises, who own the worldwide rights to The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The pair said they faced the prospect of spending thousands to rebrand. "Middle-earth Enterprises has sent and is enforcing a cease and desist, claiming we're in breach of their trademarks," Mr Lockwood said. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-64519500 1 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
