However, there are people who believe that the fame of the great writer came due to plagiarism. The heirs of an Adrian Jacobs sued Joan Rowling: Harry Potter`s story was reminded them of Jacobs’ book The Adventures of the Wizard Willy.
The main argument for the prosecutors was the fact of cooperation between Jacobs and the literary agent Christopher Little, who then worked on Harry Potter later. Several storylines – the battle of magicians, train travels, and other concepts and literary devices were borrowed from Willy. The court took the side of Joanne Rowling.
That was not an only plagiarism issue: throughout the release of all books there were different peoples, who sued Joanna. All this claims were won by Joanne`s lowers.
