Back in November, I wrote about the Harry Potter Compendium lawsuit in J.K. Rowling – Worst British Export Since Rick Astley. At the time, it seemed like I was the only one who thought that JK Rowling would prevail (even though I didn’t think she should).
Looks like I was right, unfortunately. The S.D.N.Y., following the Second Circuit’s decision in Castle Rock, held that the Compendium was not fair use. Opinion here. This is not a good day for fair use.
