This Week’s Sign Of The Apocalypse

By Wyatt Earp | November 26, 2010

This year’s hottest Christmas gift:

In a blog post entitled “Expecto Legalus” on Greenberg Glusker’s website, attorney Dan Nabel points out that Harry Potter’s favorite sport Quidditch has recently become an actual athletic event with a competitive circuit in New York City. Nabel examines whether Warner Bros. has any legal recourse to shut it down. [I]t turns out that the studio has grabbed extensive trademark rights over “Quidditch.”

The fact that the studio trademarked “Quidditch” t-shirts will surprise nobody, but how about “Quidditch” lingerie?

Well, that’s one way to straighten out a magic wand.

    If that article is anything to go by, Emma Watson’s derriere is just about the only thing associated with the Harry Potter franchise that didn’t get a Warner Bros. trademark slapped on it.

    Not that I’ll ever have the chance to check for myself, mind you…

    Wes S. – I figured Harry Potter condoms, but they actually said no to that.

    There’s a line of Harry Potter thong underwear for overweight men. It’s called “Ridikulus”.

    And please ask Wes to stop talking about slapping Emma Watson’s derriere!

    F.Y.I. Harry Potter was a real person. He died in 1939. If would like I can send you the link.

    Proof – Oh you love it. Don’t blame Wes.

    Old NFO – Either way, it would be damned entertaining.

    Harp1034 – I still can’t believe so many publishers turned down the novels at first. Dumbasses.
