An update for you this morning on the ongoing trial between WB/JKR vs.RDR Books. The Detroit Free Press is reporting an appeal is expected to be filed this week in this matter. The paper reports:

Roger Rapoport, a Muskegon publisher, and Steve Vander Ark, a Grand Rapids area librarian and author, expect their attorneys this week to file a notice of appeal preserving the men’s right to continue the legal battle for their Harry Potter book.

U.S. District Judge Robert P. Patterson Jr. ruled Sept. 8 that the book violated Rowling’s copyright and blocked its publication.

The paper also reports that reps for Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling could not be reached.

You can bet if someone duplicated one of his copyrighted books he would have a holey cow and make a big fuss about copyright laws and how they stole his story. But the shoe is on the other foot and all they can see is Green and the Attorneys only want money and don’t care about anything but the Green line. I would hate to have someone do it to one of my Books.
