Graphic Depictions of Harry Potter

With Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince taking in a boatload of cash at the box office, I figured now would be an opportune time to throw up an old Harry Potter image I did for The Record, I believe around the time the last book in the series was released.

My fiance loves this image, but to be fair she's also a huge Harry Potter fan. Much to her dismay I've been unable to get into the series with the same enthusiasm.

Something is rotten in this tribute to Denmark

Here's a rather interesting copyright infringemnt story as reported in the Wall Street Journal.

Greenville, Michigan, a town with a rather large Danish population, erected a replica of the famous Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen. Now, the town is now being sued for copyright infringement by the Artist's Rights Society. The group claims that the towns statue violates the copyright of sculptor Edvard Eriksen.
