Tanya Banned

You have got to be kidding me. Rowling's lawyers won?! Cease and desist? Obviously someone couldn't read, and could be paid off....

More stories on this travesty of justice:

, AP, Interfax.


If Tanya is plagiarism (actually, copyright was what was being argued, hard as it is to find that in these news stories) any story containing a Dark Lord being fought by a Wizard, a Dwarf, a Halfling, an Elf and a Lost Heir is obviously in line for the chop by the Tolkien Estate. Any barbarian hero with mighty thews must pay off Robert E. Howard, by Crom. Any sharp-eyed detective with odd habits -- especially the producers of Monk -- better hide from the Doyles . And so on, on and on. No genre is safe.

Writers of the world, run away!
