Just an hour ago, it was announced that Harry Potter author
J.K. Rowling has parted ways with the publishing agency,
the Christopher Little literary agency, a company that has been
involved in the making of all seven Harry Potter books, as well as three
spin-off Harry Potter books, such as The Tales of Beedle the Bard,
Quidditch through the ages, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
J.K. Rowling had worked with the Christopher Little literary agency
for about fifteen years, since the Christopher Little agency first bought the rights
to the Harry Potter books. They do NOT, however, have the rights to any sort of
digital adaptation to the books, as those rights are still held by J.K. Rowling.
It is believed that the cause of the break-up was J.K. Rowling's announcement
that digital versions of the Harry Potter books would be sold on her upcoming
website, PotterMore.com, which would greatly harm sales of the regular copies
of the book series, which would cause a sudden drop in Harry Potter book sales.
It's sad that this must happen, but to quote a famous song, Let it be.
