We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Nice.  Very understated.  I wonder, though, if it will run into copyright problems in the near future.

Knowing how fiercely JKR protect$ what $he $ee$ as her property, even from folk$ $tanding on public $idewalk$, I'm $ure B&N has the proper licen$e$, or whatever. And I'm $ure it co$t them plenty, all profit$ going to her favorite charity, of cour$e.

I am sure B&N would however nook-look isn't owned by B&N.  All wallpapers are uploaed by users so I am sure sooner or later this website will get in trouble due to copyright infringement!

I'm $ure $he'll do her be$t to $ue whomever or whatever, whenever $he can.  And if $he can't, I wouldn't be $urprised it she re$ponded with a $tatement $omething to the effect of, "Ju$t for that, I won't write any more Harry Potter book$ ever again! 

 

Won't!  WOn't!!  WON't!!!  WON'T!!!!

Re: NOOK Hogwarts Wallpaper

Were the house crests in any of the books?  If not, then it is Warner Brothers who owns the copyrights to those designs, and they would then be the ones to sue, right?

Re: NOOK Hogwarts Wallpaper

You know, I don't think they were.  Depends on how the contracts are worded, but as I recall WB had no part in the Lexicon Trial.  Don't know if they were involved in any of the others, tho.

Actually, I believe that WB was a major player in that lawsuit.

Re: NOOK Hogwarts Wallpaper

If I recall, WB was named for some legal reason, but they were not active.  They just "sat by" while JKR and her lawyers  did their thing.

There was no "sitting by".  There was only one team of lawyers for the Plaintiffs - that team represented both WB and JKR.

 

Perhaps Warner Brothers was named because in a separate suit, RDR books had tried to sue WB for copyright infringement of Vanderark when they put a Hogwarts Timeline in one of the DVD's.  RDR books was claiming that Vanderark owned the copyright of the Timeline.  It was darn nervy of them!
