You're just so blinded by, I don't know, love, respect, admiration, whatever, for Rowling, that you remain absolutely oblivious to the fact that she flat out stole some ideas from a prior work. And the reason Rawlings stole from an obscure author is because if she plagiarized a Stephen King or a Tom Clancy, everyone would have noticed it immediately. She thought she was being sly, and now she has a team of high priced Time-Warner lawyers at her disposal, so the person who originated the ideas that Rowling used in her books will never see a penny of the profits she deserves. Chalk another one up for the Corporate World screwing the honest little guy when there's a dollar to be made.
Oh, and I realize I'm replying to a year old post, but better late than never.
