Several other Tolkien sites who fought their respective bans were closed down overnight. At least Taz managed to keep the Planet Tolkien domain name. They wanted that off us too.

isn“t there a way that we could buy at least the copyright of the maps? , or the right to use them?
With no membership fees, Taz runs this site off his own back with the help of the occasional donation from others. At times it is a struggle meeting the server fees, so I don't think this is something that we could afford.
Have we tried some good old fashioned begging and grovelling?
Yes, it was a sad day when the lawyers for the Tolkien Estate demanded they come down without any chance of compromise.
I think we have to admit, the maps and poetry are gone unless we want to start busting Taz out of jail on a regular basis.
