JK Rowling cleared of plagiarism

Tell Me A Story - Comment

I’ll bet J.K. Rowling has let out a sigh of relief.

The famous author of  the "Harry Potter" series of books and films was finally  cleared of plagiarism charges filed by Paul Allen, trustee of late author Adrian Jacob's estate in a landmark U.S. judgment on Thursday.

Rejecting the case, U.S. judge Shira Scheindlin apparently said, "...the contrast between the total concept and feel of the works is so stark that any serious comparison of the two strains credulity."

JK Rowling maintains that she was unaware of the book by Jacobs until the copyright suit was filed in 2004. Earlier in October, a London court too dismissed a similar plea by Allen.

Without Reproach -a romantic mystery - try it.
