Then again, Tolkien ripped off old world mythology every which way, and the one race he did almost-kinda-but-not-really invented should all but be public domain in my personal opinion.

That said, how long until it does become public domain? Isn't there a time limit on that stuff?
I think it's death of the author plus 70 years in the UK. Which would mean that Tolkien's work goes into public domain in 2043.
