Harry Potter Lawsuit
(2008-02-29)
(wgvu) - The creator of Harry Potter is trying to stop a
fan of the books from publishing an unauthorized reference work, a
"Harry Potter Lexicon."
It's being put together by Steven Vander Ark, who edits a Web
site containing essays and other material created by fans.
It includes a list of spells and potions found in the Potter
books, along with a catalog of magical creatures and a who's-who in
the wizarding world.
The site's owner and lexicon's would-be publisher, RDR Books, is
based in Muskegon, Michigan.
In the past, J.K. Rowling has singled out the Web site and its
creator for praise. But now, she's filing a lawsuit in New York,
saying she feels betrayed by her fan.
