J.K. Rowling and the Goblet of Ire

While the story of Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling suing RDR Publishing for attempting to publish the book version of the popular Harry Potter Lexicon website has been covered via almost every imaginable angle (including straight up factsanalysis of the Lexicon website, and Rowling’s statement about it being un-British to cry in public) our favorite angle of the story is about etymology.


With such a sensational story, it gives reporters license to go wild with creativity. To that end, following are some of our favorite, creative, pun-ny story titles to date:

- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Copyright Law

- Harry Potter and the Lawsuit of Doom

- J.K. Rowling and the Courtroom of Muggles

- J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Order of Cease and Desist

(We think ours gets some points for creativity, too.)


But if some of you are anxiously awaiting the release of any Potter-themed book, movie or media because you’re wild about Harry, you may want to give some of our librarians’ recommended alternative reads a try in the meantime, as this lawsuit could last a while...
