JKR/WB vs RDR Books Trial: Public Statement by Warner Brothers

A spokesperson for Warner Brothers and J.K. Rowling issued the following statement following Tuesday’s legal proceedings in the trial over whether the publication of a print version of The Harry Potter Lexicon should be blocked:

“A fan’s affectionate enthusiasm should not obscure acts of plagiarism. The publishers knew what they were doing. The problem remains that the Lexicon takes an enormous amount of Ms. Rowling’s work and adds virtually no original commentary of its own. As we’ve said in court, it takes too much and adds too little. Authors have a duty to prevent the exploitation of their works by people who contribute nothing original, creative or interpretive.”

Leaky will have additional information on the case as the day progresses.
