PostSubject: Michigan Man To Publish Harry Potter Book Despite Losing Copyright Lawsuit   Wed Dec 10, 2008 4:41 pm

Despite losing a copyright infringement lawsuit…a Michigan man says he will still go forward with plans to publish an un-authorized reference guide based on the Harry Potter books.

Detroit Public Radio’s Quinn Klinefelter has more…


In September a federal judge ruled that Muskegon-based R-D-R Books could NOT publish a proposed Harry Potter lexicon…written by fan and web site operator Steven Vander Ark.

The court also awarded 67-hundred dollars in statutory damages to J-K Rowling…author of the Potter books and Warner Brothers studios…which owns the rights to the film properties.

But now Vander Ark says he will publish a new…and still unauthorized Potter lexicon…within weeks.

The former school librarian…who launched his Potter web site in 2000…says he has learned what is acceptable under fair-use guidelines…so the new lexicon will contain much more critical commentary and interpretation of the Potter universe.
