Submission + - Tolkien Estate Censors the Word "Tolkien" (boingboing.net)

An anonymous reader writes: Following their recent attempt to censor a work of historical fiction containing Tolkien as a character, the estate have now issued a takedown notice to someone making buttons with the words "While you were reading Tolkien, I was watching Evangelion" on them, claiming "intellectual property right infringement". Predictably, this has led to widespread blog coverage, a new store has appeared offering a range of 'censored' Tolkien items, and the 'offending' product has had vastly increased exposure as a direct result of the removal.
