J.K. Rowling has made legal headlines again, but this time it's a fan based website she is going after. Through a lawsuit set on Hollows Eve, Rowling has clearly stated her objections of the publcation of the "Harry Potter Lexicon," a fan based encyclopedia produced by the site "http://www.hp-lexicon.org".

The site has spells, potions, maps, and lists of wizards from the story.

She expressed her own plans to launch an encyclopedia-style book and clearly stated in her lawsuit that this would be copyright infringement.
