As Christopher Tokien and his descendants are the literary executors and heirs to his father's (J.R.R.) works, they will remain copyrighted for as long as the family chooses to renew the copyright. Christopher T. has already renewed copyrights to certain of his father's works and will do so for Hobbit and L.O.R. as they approach expiration.
