J.K. Rowling Wins Copyright Suit, Pocket Change

We've been so consumed with other trials lately, we almost forgot about the J.K. Rowling copyright suit. Today, however, it's back in the news: "Federal District Judge Robert P. Patterson said Ms. Rowling had proven that Steven Vander Ark's 'Harry Potter Lexicon' would cause her irreparable harm as a writer. He permanently blocked publication of the reference guide and awarded Ms. Rowling and her publisher $6,750 in statutory damages." And the New York media cheered! [NYT]
