J K Rowling & Warner Bros Statement On Plagiarism Lawsuit

NEW YORK, April 15, 2008 LAWFUEL – Legal Newswire — The following is a statement by a spokesperson for J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. Entertainment:

“A fan’s affectionate enthusiasm should not obscure acts of plagiarism. The publishers knew what they were doing. The problem remains that the Lexicon takes an enormous amount of Ms. Rowling’s work and adds virtually no original commentary of its own. As we’ve said in court, it takes too much and adds too little. Authors have a duty to prevent the exploitation of their works by people who contribute nothing original, creative or interpretive.”
