Rowling Returns . . . To The Courtroom
I bet J.K. Rowling’s lawyer didn’t know what a big payout Harry Potter would actually be for him/her. Rowling seems to be in the courtroom more than anywhere else lately – I’m thinking courthouses will soon have benches reserved just for her.
“Harry Potter author JK Rowling has been embroiled in a legal battle to remove her books from an American literary website Scribd, it has been reported.”
It’s another take on the artist vs. piracy battle – Scribd allegedly has had different versions of books by popular authors uploaded to the site without the authorization of the author. (Scribd has been called the bookish YouTube.)
Rowling is battling to have these free copies of her books removed.
