They have the rights to material in The Hobbit and in TLOTR trilogy, including the appendices, Material from the Silmarillion and the other Tolkien stories is off limits, and would have them in court in hours.
The world will end in Dec 2012, so don’t hold your breath.
Only if 0bambi is reelected. Confirmed by new translations of Mayan calender.
