And the rich get richer.
A New York judge decided on Monday ruled in favor of J.K. Rowling.
The Harry Potter author won her claim that a fan violated her copyright with his intentions to publish a "Potter Encyclopedia."
According to judge Robert Patterson, he said that "Ms. Rowling had proven that Steven Vander Ark's Harry Potter Lexicon would cause her irreparable harm as a writer."
Vander Ark will no longer be able to publish his book. He still runs the Harry Potter Lexicon website, though.
Further details about the decision have yet to be released.
How do Harry Potter fans feel about this???
