J.K. Rowling and The Author's Lawsuit
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling was told by a judge on Wednesday to settle out of court with RDR Books according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The lawsuit involves a copyright dispute in which the publisher is seeking to release a Harry Potter encyclopedia. The encyclopedia was created based on a Web site created by librarian Steven Vander Ark.
U.S. District Judge Robert Patterson Jr. said the case was a “legal close call” and added, “I think this case, with imagination, could be settled.”
