The legacy of JRR Tolkien, author Lord of the Rings, Has successfully defeated a cryptocurrency that claims to be “the token that rules them all.”

The JRR token cryptocurrency was launched in August, and its website features rings, hobbit holes, and wizards that are surprisingly similar to Gandalf.

But Tolkien Manor, it handles JRR Tolkien’s rights Hobbit with Lord of the Rings Fantasy novels quickly stepped in to file a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a global forum on intellectual property policy.

It pointed out that the website domain name of the cryptocurrency infringed its trademark. Tolkien’s novel was made into a trilogy of Hollywood movies, directed by Peter Jackson and starring Ian McLean.

In this regard, the lawyer of Matthew Jensen, a developer of JRR Token located in Florida, stated that “token” is a general term and should not be confused with the last name Tolkien, and does not infringe any intellectual property rights.

But the WIPO administrative team’s decision concluded that there is no doubt that the developer “knows about Tolkien’s works and created a website to weigh the fame of these works”.

Tolkien Manor stated that it has now retracted the JRRToken.com domain name and has obtained a promise from the developer to stop all operations under the JRR Token name and delete any infringing content from all related websites and social media accounts.

Steven Maier, an attorney at the Maier Blackburn law firm representing JRR Tolkien’s estate, stated that this was a “particularly flagrant infringement case” and added that the estate was “very vigilant” to prevent unauthorized parties from using JRR Tolkien’s name. .

In the past, Tolkien Manor has sued travel and merchandise companies for using the author’s name and literary works, but this is the first time it has taken action against cryptocurrencies.

Johnson Dalal, the US law firm representing Johnson, has been contacted for comment, but has not yet responded as of press time.
