J'aimerais savoir ce qu les anglophones qui comprendront mieux que moi les articles en pensent, et si ces infos leur paraissent fiable :
WikipediaIn November 2007, The Scotsman reported that Rowling had threatened legal action against American computer programmer G. Norman Lippert for allegedly violating her intellectual property rights by producing and publishing the online novel, James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing, an unofficial and unauthorised continuation of the Harry Potter series. Written as a fan fiction project for Lippert's wife and sons, the novel is set eighteen years after the end of the last official installment in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and describes the adventures of Harry Potter's son, James Potter, during his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A specialist in intellectual property law at Strathclyde University commented that, "If an insubstantial character from a novel is taken and built up by another author in a new story, that can be a defence against copyright infringements." However, after Lippert offered Rowling an advance copy of the novel, Rowling dismissed her threat and said she supported the novel and any others like it. Lippert subsequently produced a sequel, James Potter and the Curse of the Gatekeeper. After the novel first appeared online in early November 2007, some Harry Potter fans on the Internet initially speculated that the site might be part of an elaborate viral marketing campaign for an official continuation or spinoff of Harry Potter, one either written or at least approved by Rowling herself. On November 9, 2007, Rowling's agent Neil Blair denied that Rowling was in any way involved with the purported project, and Warner Bros., the studio which owns the rights to the Harry Potter film series, denied that the novel was in any way connected to the official Harry Potter franchise.
La référence 63 mène à cet article, et c'est cet article qui me mets le doute (j'ai du mal à le comprendre, et du coup, je ne suis pas certaine qu'il soit fiable)
Personellement, ça me choquerait énormément que ce soit vrai. Et d'ailleurs, si ça l'était, pourquoi n'y aurait-il pas d'un coup une invasion de fanfiction en librairies ? (parce que ce serait la porte ouverte au n'importe quoi...) Je n'ai vu mention de maison d'édition nulle part, estc-e que c'est de l'auto-édité ?
Enfin bref, ça me parait complêtement dingue. Un gros fake.
