J.K. Rowling goes to court

J. K. Rowling goes to court 

I love JK and her books, and the lexicon is an awesome internet presence, but I kinda feel like she's in the right here. I don't understand any other reason to publish the lexicon other than to make money. All the information is free on the web. Why publish? Especially since the material IS hers to begin with. I think it's especially interesting that Vander Ark himself made sure there was a clause in his contract with his publisher that they pay and defend any lawsuit that might arise from this. His gut instinct was correct. Also, I fear the result of this case could have an effect on JK writing and publishing her OWN encyclopedia of Harry. And I would completely pay the money to read what SHE has written about the subject, after all, it is her own creation.

What do you guys think?
