omg!!!! i have to say this feels like jkr being greedy. it kinda pisses me off. she basically went to court and said oh look how popular this guys free web site is. i could be makin money on that idea "HP was my character and i was gonna make an encyclopedia of HP "eventually" so you cant do that" there is a copyright rule that says if its reference material you are making then you can use the original source if you want to. duh. you would need to! how do you think that encyclopedias get made!? i am so irked. i really did not think she was gonna win when this issue first came to light. its like how she has teams of people that search on the internet all day long looking for "harry potter", in the tags area of handmade goods and then she sues them for the meeger proffits they have made making stitch markers or whatever in the hogwarts colors. i just dont get it. if the seller was saying this is aprooved by jkr i could see how she wouldnt like that. but just someone saying this is inspired by the harry potter books. ugh! shes pushing her fans away i think. any other thoughts? am i too bent out of shape about this!?
