Harry Potter and the International Order of Copyright

ø

Of course you’ve read the latest Harry
Potter book Order of the Pheonix, but have you read Harry
Potter and Leopard-Walk-Up-to-Dragon
, in which Harry encounters
sweet and sour rain, becomes a hairy troll, and joins Gandalf to re-enact
scenes from
The Hobbit? How about Tanya Grotter and the Magic Double Bass, in
which Harry’s Rusian twin Tanya rides a double bass, sports a mole
instead of a bolt of lightning, and attends the Tibidokhs School of
Magic? Perhaps you missed Porri Gatter and the Stone Philosopher, wherein
Harry’s Belarussian clone wields a grenade launcher and re-fights the
White Russian wars. Tim
Wu uses the fiercely protected Harry Potter franchise copyright to
examine trends in world copyright litigation. From
Slate.
