We, the undersigned, petition The Saul Zaentz Company (SZC) to drop their unfair and unnecessary legal action against The Hobbit Free House in Southampton, UK. The pub has been trading under that name for 23 years, 8 of which were before SZC got the copyright in the United Kingdom for the name. No copyright infringement was intended and the public house is not "cashing in" on expected revenue from your movies merely it is trading under a brand it established long before. Please cease and desist this unfair course of action.

    Like has already been said, they aren't taking any money from your film or franchising income. So LEAVE OFF this malicious prosecution!

    One of my favourite palces. Absolutely ridiculous to close it down over something so petty!
