Harry Potter URL backlash begins
The Internet community has its say
Following Warner Bros unjustifiable persecution of children who happen to register Harry Potter domain names because they are fans of the books, a few souls have taken it upon themselves to make their feelings known.
As we mentioned previously, Alastair Alexander has set up www.potterwar.org.uk to highlight the conglomerate's bullying. Some have taken it a little further, however.
Fuckoffwarnerbrothers.thisisnotaharrypottersite.org, for example. This is run by a collective of students that calls itself mimezine and exists to "fullfill [sic] a group of people's desires to learn, share and communicate". Unfortunately, it doesn't actually go into any detail about Warner Bros or Harry Potter, so presumably we are to pick the subtlety of the URL :-).
And then there's www.harrypotter-warnercansuemyarse.co.uk, which redirects to http://indifference.homeip.net. This is the site of an obviously angry man. Again, his fury doesn't take in Warner or Harry Potter but is instead aimed at Windows 2000, RealJukebox and NTL.
We welcome any additions to the list. ®
