The Harry Potter copyright lawsuit continues in the UK. Despite a US Judge’s dismissal of the case against Potter publisher Scholastic in the US by the Estate of Adrian Jacobs last week, the Estate’s copyright case against author J.K. Rowling and her UK publisher Bloomsbury continues. Jacobs Trustee Paul Allen said “This US decision has no legal bearing upon the Estate’s established action in the High Court of England against J.K. Rowling personally and her publishers Bloomsbury over breach of copyright in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. That case is scheduled for a 10 day trial in February 2012 when the Estate hopes that evidence and cross examination will be heard in open court for the first time.” Additionally, the Jacobs Estate is considering an appeal in the US case.
