Judge finds no plagiarism in Harry Potter
January 7, 2011.- An American judge rejected a lawsuit that accused British author JK Rowling, for plagiarism of the fourth Harry Potter book “The Goblet of fire” published in 1997.
The writer was sued for using parts of Adrian Jacobs’ work, Willy the Wizard for her book.
The accusation was made by the heirs of British Jacobs, who died in 1997.
In reading the decision, the judge stated that “Between the two works is drawn that there are significant differences in content and style.”
J. K. Rowling published seven books of the Harry Potter since 1997, and then they were brought to the big screen, becoming a creditor of hundreds of millions dollars.
