To everyone claiming JKR is "just greedy": it's not just a money issue. It's a fair use, copyright, and transformitive works issue.
SVA could probably have published the Lexicon with little difficulty if it used <10% JKR's own words, included meaningful and insightful commentary, and contributed something meaningful.
But it's not like that.
It wouldn't have been a problem if SVA had merely left it as a not-for-profit website-- copyright infringement usually only becomes an issue when attention is drawn to it, it becomes for-profit, or it's claimed that it ISN'T.
But SVA and RDR are trying to print it.
There's also the issue of protecting copyright; that is, if JKR/WB do NOT sue for-profit copyright infringement, they can "lose" copyright, and any Joe off the streets could start profiting from JKR's brainchild through pirating, selling non-authorized transformitive works, and generally screwing up Harry Potter for everyone.
Even if SVA is the "underdog" and "little man" in this story, the big boys and rich peeps are in the right, from a legal standpoint.
(Also, JKR is three shades of absolutely fantastic. <3 )
<quoted text>Isnt that so with most if not all of the potter fans who have hit puberty and older??
Don't be silly; for every crazy stalker fan, there's eight who're only mildly nuts, twenty who're just involved with the fandom, and a hundred who are JUST fans.
