Warner Bros. sparks outrage after crackdown on Harry Potter fan events to ‘preserve trademark’

Harry Potter fans are outrageous post the J.K Rowling Series celebrations on unauthorized festivals. It said that it was important to bring the Harry Potter fan events to a cease as they were likely to be “vehicle for unauthorized commercial activity”.

However, enraged celebrations told that the bosses are intimating as Death Eaters by pulling off the jolly out of the Harry Potter themed events organized by the communities.

That averted everything from meeting with Dumbledore and Harry to stand against the Dark Arts classes.

“It’s almost as if Warner Bros. has been taken over by Voldemort, trying to use dark magic to destroy the light of a little town,” – said a 24-year-old student Sarah Jo Tucker.

Organizers of other festivals in the United States including New York, Aurora and Ithaca were instructed not to indulge too much in the Harry Potter themed activities as it would be an action against the trademark.

“Warner Bros. is always pleased to learn of the enthusiasm of Harry Potter fans, but we are concerned, and do object when fan gatherings become a vehicle for unauthorized commercial activity,” – said the company.

The Philadelphia festival fans hailed onto Twitter in order to reach J.K Rowling assist them to carry on with the festival. However, as per a spokeswoman, the author has issued no comment.

In 2015 the author’s statement grew from a minor celebration to fully fledge. Potter fest was hosted over 20,000 fans in the year 2017, said the festival director Darlynne Overbaugh.

In February Warner Bros had sent her a letter that read out towards the protection of the franchise, however, on the other side, she felt as if the festival was a helping hand towards building it.
