There has been reports lately that Harry Potter
book author J.K. Rowling is seriously considering
authorizing the Harry Potter books to go into the
increasingly popular e-book format.
"We are currently actively looking at all the
various options for Harry Potter in this space,
that is, e-books," said a representative from
the Christopher Little Literary Agency,
the agency responsible for handling the publications
of all seven of the Harry Potter books in England.
The reason J.K. Rowling decided against publishing any of the
Harry Potter books in digital format was the growing issue of piracy.
But perhaps the digital release of Harry Potter as an e-book
would diminish piracy of the Harry Potter books already in existence.
We'll have to see how this plays out.
