Writer loses privacy case - Harry Potter author JK Rowling has lost a court case which attempted to ban publication of pictures of her son.
The photograph, which showed Rowling's 20 month old son David was published in Express Newspapers after they were supplied with the image from press agency Big Pictures (UK)
JK Rowling, real name Joanne Murray claiming infringement of privacy and attempted to ban further publication of the pictures which showed her with her husband and child in Edinburgh three years ago.
While the author did not win a complete ban of publication, a temporary ban remains in the meantime during which she will be allowed to appeal against the judgement. Joanna and her husband are said to be disappointed at the decision and feel that their claim was misunderstood, stating that their only aim was to protect their children from press intrusion during their childhood.
