Okay first off, let me say that I'm asking this because someone on
another list asked it. I don't actually have a conlang that I'd be
worried about protecting. Though, I might one day....
In any case, has anyone looked into this? Has anyone done a conlang for
a published work that they worried about protecting? How about just
plain protecting one?
I seem to recall that there was some kind of legal case involving the
Tolkien estate, but I don't recall the details. Can anyone enlighten
me? Might that be applicable in this case?
