I can imagine it like a scene out of Madmen.:

There's Roger Sharpe sitting in the waiting room at Universal Studios to see their IP manager.

He hears laughter inside the office... the doors open...

Out comes Gary Stern with a smile on his face..

"Hi Roger. How's it going?"

And he heads to the elevator whistling....

So they had permission but hadn't worked out the details, and now may have violated the arrangement? Tricky stuff.

Quoted from Aurich:

The issue is that by doing that they risked Universal getting pissed off. I don't think anyone was going to get sued or anything ridiculous like that. But they could have potentially decided the liability of this company representing their brand was too high and pulled the plug.
That's the main source of conflict. And I might have some details wrong, I don't have all sides of the story. The point is that while there was some rule bending, and possibly issues, no one is saying they didn't have the license. It just hasn't finished the approval process.

Thanks.. I'd been told to read up on this but the thread looked like "War and Peace".. LOL

I can't help but wonder if Gary Stern would approach them and try to snafu the deal? That would be the ultimate business move. If the rumors are true that he can re-run LOTR the same time the Hobbit comes out, he's not pulling any punches against his competitors. Pretty interesting stuff.
