From USA Today:
NEW YORK (AP) — A group of crusading intellectual property lawyers at Stanford Law School say they will help defend a small publishing house being sued by author J.K. Rowling over its plan to print an unauthorized companion guide to her Harry Potter series.
Haven't there been, like, a bazillion other unauthorized companion guides to HP and his world? Did WB and JKR try to block any of those? Wasn't the website created by a whole ton of people? Will they all get a cut of the proceeds, or at least a free copy?
Intellectual property and moolah questions aside, does the world really need another HP guide? Will anyone buy it? (I am totally suffering from HP burnout, man. And it's a good thing The Golden Compass comes out tomorrow, because I'm headed in a similar direction there.)
