<nettime> WARNER BROTHERS INTIMIDATES CHILDREN


Warner Bothers has been emailing children and adolescents with "fan sites"  
pertaining to the Harry Potter books, threatening these young persons with
legal action on the basis of trademark infringement.

Young persons involved in the Harry Potter fan movement are calling for a
boycott of the Warner Brothers Harry Potter movie, and all merchandise
related to the Warners Brothers film.

Fan protest sites are available here:
