The estate of some unknown, dead author is suing JK Rowling for plagiariasm. Can you believe it? Of course you can, cos the world is very often just plain silly. JK has clearly inherited from the strong British tradition in children’s fantasy that includes Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton and Anna Elizabeth Bennett (author of the Little Witch), etc. Inheriting that cultural voice is not the same as plagiarism. Why can’t jealous, money-grabbing people just let authors and artists do their thing and then consider its value in social and meaningful ways? I’ll tell you why – there are as many bad and selfish people around as good, perhaps more. For every Dumbledore, there is a Voldemort. I think the dark witches and wizards are aligning against JK. It is time for every Harry, Ron and Hermione out there to speak up for JK before it is too late!
And let’s not forget that people have tried suing her before. And a year from now, there’ll be another, and another, and another.
