Defenders of Middle-earth!
Become a TRUE Defender of Middle-earth! Middle-earth Network has grown tremendously in the past year and we have many exciting projects underway in film, music, and media that we have the opportunity to invest in, and make a reality. We are inviting anyone who is interested in growing our Community and would like to make these projects an integral part of MyMiddle-earth to Join the Fellowship!
Save the Shire
Help us save the Shire! The Saul Zaentz Company has been using what we believe are bullying tactics against individuals and family businesses over trademark issues. The community at MyMiddle-Earth believes this is against Professor Tolkien’s vision and has taken a stand against the Saul Zaentz Company by filing opposition to the company’s trademarking of the term Shire.
