A Harsh Lesson

This will be the first tale in the Harry Potter series not to be penned by Rowling.

I remember the month I picked up Spider-Man and Strange Tales featuring Dr Strange, and the artist was not Ditko. A harsh lesson. What once was original creation becomes merely a corporate franchise. (Except, Rowling retains her rights to the riches from her characters.)

Sorta relatedly, On Wednesday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling that Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel transferred the rights to the character to Warner Bros. in 2001.
