J.K. Rowling Wins Lawsuit Against Fan

J.K. Rowling wins copyright claim over Harry Potter website operator

“While the lexicon, in its current state, is not a fair use of the Harry Potter works, reference works that share the lexicon’s purpose of aiding readers of literature generally should be encouraged rather than stifled,” he [U.S. District Judge Robert P. Patterson] said.

He added that he ruled in Rowling’s favor because the “Lexicon appropriates too much of Rowling’s creative work for its purposes as a reference guide.”

What I don’t understand: If she didn’t sue the website, why sue when it was going to be simply printed on paper?

It seems to me she now has the right to ask for the website to be abolished too.

Well, it went before a judge and the ruling is in.
