Revised Unauthorized Lexicon Set to Hit Shelves
Steve Vander Ark and Publisher Rapoport are having the last laugh. Rowling sued to enjoin the sale of the first iteration of the Harry Potter Lexicon. Judge Patterson issued a thoughtful (although I disagreed with the lack of emphasis on the market issue) opinion and VanderArk used the opinion as a guideline and rewrote much of the Lexicon. The revised version has over 30,000 pre-orders and will go on sale on January 16. Apparently Rowling and her band of attorneys see a suit against the revised Lexicon as fruitless as she has seen the revised book and no suit to enjoin the sale is forthcoming.
