JK Rowlings books dont suck. they arent the best book in the world, but they are a good read.

if they sucked, they would never have become the worlds most sucessful literary series, selling twice as many books as the lotrs books in only ten years compared to tolkeins what, 60-70 years?

I have read alot of books that where better written, but none that were as vividly detailed nor as complicated yet easy to read.

Too fictitious, in my opinion.

Can we not argue over the quality of Harry Potter books, please? I was under the impression that this was a comment board on the trial between Jo Rowling and Steve Van der Ark over copyright issues.

When Steven Vander Ark's publisher, RDR Books, told him it was okay to publish a printed version of Vander Ark's Harry Potter Lexicon Web site, which is largely derived from work by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, Vander Ark accepted that without further question and proceeded with the project. That cavalier attitude is no surprise when one considers he had been trying to market this idea to two other publishers.

When did it become okay to lift someone else's copyrighted material and present it as one's own? That's why,“in the name of scholastic pursuit”, I've made a copy of Vander Ark's Web site to use as my own Web site. Oh, it's okay. I've changed the name of the site and reorganized it a little. My version is called Harry Potter's Maxicon. Different enough, right?
