Another J.K. Rowling Lawsuit

| Filed under: AnglophiliaLegal MattersHarry Potter

J.K. Rowling has just filed a lawsuit against the publisher of the London Star Map, PerezHilton.com has learned.

The celebrity map reportedly has details of the Harry Potter author's London residence and clear instructions on how to get there, something Rowling considers 'a gross invasion of privacy'.

In a statement, J.K. Rowling said, "The sole aim of London Star Map is self-evidently to incite, encourage and enable members of the public to track down and locate the exact location of private residences of various recognisable "celebrities" so that they can visit those residences." Rowling continued, "I'm a very private individual who regards my family's privacy and safety as having paramount importance. "

That sucks!

Doesn't seem right to make it that easy for creepy stalkers to find the object of their affections!

Then again, she has a lot of money to have a nice house in a safe home and lots of security people working for her!

    wow…with all of that $$$ you'd think she could find a better girdle - to hide that unfortunate belly bulge. Maybe shes just retaining water?

    Why are people such losers that they need to stalk people who they do not even know. Whether or not the lady has enough money to put a huge fence around her abode..why should she! It truly is offensive how people/companies try to make money off of these 'star gazers'. Who the f cares where anybody lives. Privacy is more important than stupid ignorant people's curiosity. Go JK…I hope you win this one and set a precedence in England so that each citizen's right to privacy is acknowleged and enforcable by law.

    Aw c'mon Perez, give the woman a break. Just because she can afford security doesn't mean the public has a right to stalk her.

    why should she have to spend her own money because other people want to be stalkers ?

    you know, i can understand people gawking at and taking pictures of celebs when they're in public places (although i think the paparizi do some shit bag crazy things anyways) but i really have to draw the line at stalking people, taking pictures of, and hounding people at their homes…even if they have security :p

    So it's ok for JK Rowling to demand privacy, but not ok for Justin Timberlake to demand privacy?

    Perez, you're starting to suck!!! Pick up the quality please!!!!!!

    Oh Mario,
    IF you were talented and famous you would want your privacy, as opposed to being a fame obsessed celebutard, that you are.

    Like you, a lot of people make a living sucking off successful people- no matter what they have to say or do. She has a right to live in privacy. Mostly because there are a lot of really SICK people who can't tell fantasy from reality. She wants her kids not just SAFE but also able to grow up without stupid tourists and fans gawking at them. She is an author- not a movie star. But she attracts a lot of strange people. Why should she be on a map? Should we come to your mother's house and see her all the time and ask if you are home? How would you like THAT? If it's such a great idea, POST YOUR ADDRESS on your website!



  29. 29

    She didn't have to jump straight to suing them. She simply could have contacted the map company first and alerted them to the fact that she could take legal action if they don't remove her home from the map. If they refused that's when you call your lawyers.

    it doesn't matter how much money she has, the point is that she has a right to her privacy. if she's not out in public, she has a right not to be bothered by whatever stalker wants to visit her at home. ugh. how terrible. how would you like it if your address became public and people stalked you? sometimes you are really lame, perez.

    I have young children and it would NEVER be ok for creepy people to come hanging around.

    Ron #22: Timberlake's prima donna attitude (why have a press conference if you don't want to answer any questions?) is completely different than wanting to protect your home and kids.

    the difference between jk and other celebrities is that jk is a writer, she earns her living out of using brain, not her looks, so I don't see how she deserves to be harassed. AND PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THAT SHE IS A GREAT HUMAN; SHE DONATES MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO CHARITY SO STOP CALLING HER GREEDY!

    All this concern about privacy from the same guy who posted the exact address of a celebrity wedding not too long ago.

    Doesn't matter how many gazillions you have, EVERYONE and their family is entitled to privacy and safety. Her address should not be available for public access. I would be super pissed if my home address was published for all to see especially if I was famous. Don't forget these people have children in their homes and there are far too many delusional / violent people in this world.

    She has a point.
    I am not a public figure, but I have ads and websites and I wouldn't want the general public knowing my address or home phone number.
    There has to be a line between public and private.

    Re: proper
    Apparently she will not respond to any request where a lawsuit is "filled"
    If you are not educated enough to post a reply then please check into a school that will help you with you're lack of education prior to your postings on an international blog…..I'm just sayin………

    Honestly, J.K. Rowling has the right to sue them. She cares about the privacy of her family and wants to keep them safe! It's perfectly fine for her to do this, and her having a lot of money doesn't affect at all her right to privacy. Seriously, just back off, people. No need to leave her shallow insults.

    does this biyatch realize real estate property records are PUBLIC and anyone can look them up?

    Leave her alone — nasty people. I'm glad she's sticking up for her rights. Blame the people that keep dishing out this crap, not her for sticking up for herself.



  51. 51

    Haven't they been selling Maps to the stars homes on every street corner in hollywood? It's a matter of public record, anyone can found out where anyone lives.

    Isn't it amusing that she invented the Marauders Map on which Harry watches his girlfriend Ginny's every move in a stalkerish way, but a real map offends her?

  53. monkey says – reply to this


    53

    Wow… since she is an author who is really good, she does not deserve to have her own privacy…
    All of her lawsuits are pretty much legitimate though, she was only trying to make people respect her and her family's privacy, is there something wrong with that?.. in the other one, somebody was copying and pasting her work and selling it for money that does not go to anything worthwhile, like a charity, as much of her profit does.

    i think it's disgusting how many people on this board are slandering a woman's desire for privacy and safety for her family, because she's a "rich writing bitch". because, obviously, none of you all would care if someone stalked you and harrassed you and your family.
    i couldn't care less if perez poked fun at her- he does that to everyone- but to see the dozens of people who hate her because she's successful is just repulsive. nice job, you hypocritical fucks, and enjoy hell.
