Harry Potter Themed Dinner Banned for “Infringing Copyright”

I hope Warner Brothers has operatives out in full force this Saturday, as there are certain to be hundreds of little Harry Potters and Hermione Grangers wandering the streets of most major American cities and towns trick-or-treating! And unlike the lady who hosts non-profit themed dinners in her home, those underage copyright-infringers stand to make at least a modest profit in the form of the candy and other treats they bring home.

I also can’t help but notice that J. K. Rowling, the author who actually, you know, created all these beloved characters and their exotic foods (which appeared in her books before Warner Brothers made the movies) is conspicuously absent from this story.
