Yes, Loudmouth Rowling has every right to control her work since she owns the copyright to Harry Potter, I even said it was all about copyright when I first reported the story. So I know all about copyright infrigement.
What’s fucked about this story and what pisses me off so much about it, that Steven Vander Ark commended nicely to Rowling that she supported his website, and respected her to visiting his website, he wrote an open letter to her thanking her for it:
In an article I posted earlier, she responded back saying nice things to Vander Ark and the website, and such.
In today’s court hearing she said nasty things about Vander Ark like accusing him of “jumping the Harry Potter phenomenon” bandwagon, and call him out in all kinds of nasty bullshit. Vander Ark have to be upset right now. I’m sure he’s sad about it.
She has the right to control her work how she wants but if you read the article I posted below again…
right here…quote from article “Vander Ark was contacted by an RDR Books employee, who told him that publication of the lexicon would not violate copyright law, he said.”
The book publishing company even flat out said that the book would not violate copyright law. This is why Vander Ark has every right to do this Encyclopedia. This is why he is going to win. Maybe the employee was wrong when he said it doesn’t violate copyrights, but a book company wouldn’t lie about something like that.
If writers can continue to write Star Trek and Star Wars fiction novels, it does not violate the copyright to those. Vander Ark’s “Lexicon” is written so Harry Potter fans can be entertained by, not to create a negative impact, I don’t know what Mrs. Loudmouth is worried about. She should appreciate his promotion and marketing of Harry Potter and appreciate him being a fan, this is how he gets treated, being treated like dirt by an ego driven author. This is coming from the same woman who said one of the Harry Potter characters is gay when it wasn’t mentioned in the books and it created controversy in the news, this woman is a loudmouth because that’s what she is.
Oh yeah, and this gets better, she once said she was quitting the Harry Potter series for good and now she’s thinking about doing another one. Mrs. Loudmouth Attention Whore. I can come up with a lot of funny names for her.
Keep your head up high Steven, don’t let this egomaniac bring you down.
