Reader Michael Beckett has stumbled upon some very interesting information in the UK. It seems Time Warner has been registering trademarks for Harry Potter and in the process, registered what appear to be new book titles. If you go to the UK Patent Office’s trademark search and type in “Harry Potter” you will come up with 3 very interesting marks – Harry Potter and the Alchemist’s Cell, Harry Potter and the Pyramids of Furmat, and Harry Potter and the Chariots of Light. Ironically, these were all registered 4/26/2000 – J.K. Rowling didn’t let the title of her next book, “Order of the Phoenix” slip until last October. So were these just a ruse to throw fans off track? Or will two of these titles be used for books 6 and 7 ?
