Harry Potter Lexicon Trial Begins
Oh, and one more thing:

The HP Lexicon trial started yesterday.

cleolinda is doing an excellent round-up report of all the excitement as it happens over on Fandom Wank.


For background, I posted an explanation and discussion of the trial back when the complaint and answer were filed.


And now, here's another excellent legal discussion of the case by praetorianguard

ETA: The Leaky Cauldron has a paraphrased account of JKR's trial testimony. What I find notable here are all the instances where Rowling has let slip hints of what a Rowling-authored encyclopedia could be like. If the whole of her encyclopedia consisted of gems like the ones here (examination of the death theme in the books; origin of the occamy beast; etc.) then a Rowling encyclopedia would be a coveted and enjoyable book for any HP enthusiast. That SVA and RDR think they can compete with that, or that a fan would rather have the Lexicon, is laughable. That Rowling is now feeling discouraged about the idea of her own encyclopedia by this litigation is a real shame. One hopes that after this trial is over (and JKR has won), she will feel differently.

Legal fights just drain the life force from you. When it is over she needs some time at the spa for a recharge.
