Harry Potter and the Copyright Court Case

Lots of coverage of this in the press today - JK Rowling in court in New York to try to stop the publication of an unofficial Encyclopaedia about the books. I'm interested in the fact that the material is already available on a website, and that according to BBC Newsround, Rowling has used the site and found it useful - it appears to have an endorsement from her on the home page. Interesting that the website is not viewed as a threat, or breach of copyright, but that the book is.

One place in the press is here: http://books.guardian.co.uk/news/articles/0,,2273675,00.html
