LAW: No Claim on Harry Potter

Harry Potter has been cleared of copyright infringement! It gets better - an author who sued J.K. Rowling for copying her ideas (principally, a book using the term "muggles") has been sanctioned (to the tune of a $50,000 fine) by a federal court in New York. "The judge noted seven instances of false evidence, including an advertisement that was modified to include a trademark symbol, altered paragraphs that allegedly refer to a book titled "Larry Potter and His Best Friend Lilly," and forged sales invoices."
