Everyone is always trying to get a piece of this woman's fortune!
J.K. Rowling is being sued by the estate of the late Adrian Jacobs for allegedly stealing ideas from another British author.
The lawsuit claims that J.K. ripped off parts of Jacobs' 1987 book The Adventures of Willy the Wizard - No. 1 Livid Land for her book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Jacobs' estate originally named Bloomsbury Publishing PLC for copyright infringement as the defendant in the suit but Sydney agent Max Markson revealed that Rowling was also added as a defendant when he learned that the statute of limitations to sue her was still applicable.
Trustee of Jacobs' estate Paul Allen is also looking into whether or not the Harry Potter films and soon-to-be-opened theme park are breaching copyright law as well.
Markson says he estimates the lawsuit is "a billion-dollar case," but we have a feeling J.K. will still come out on top.
What do U think?
