Hari Puttar Law Suit

Hari Puttar Poster (2008)Hollywood movie giant Warner Bros is suing Bollywood film company Mirchi Movies over the title of its latest film Hari Puttar - A Comedy Of Terrors, a name which Warner Bros reckons is too close to Harry Potter. The poster shows a banal comedy scenario with irritatingly cute kids and with baddies getting their feet caught in mouse traps. Looks more like Home Alone than Harry Potter. The case is due to be heard in Bombay High Court. If Warner Bros wins, BBC TV better watch out. It can't base its next daft Hairy Bikers cookery series on a golf course. Hairy Putters no way!

This is hilarious, especially your "Hairy Putters" gag, bearing in mind they currently have "Hairy Bakers". JK Rowling just doesn't have enough cash already it seems. I haven't noticed any lawsuits winging the way of "Barry Trotter" books however.

Glad you like the gag. It's Warner Bros that's suing, not J.K. Rowling. They guard their movie rights; she guards her book rights, except for Barry Trotter it seems. I've been wondering about that....
