I went to my patent lawyer and he called the gentleman who sent the
letter from the Senior Concil's office, while I called Time-Warner
stockholder services. My understanding is the guy that sent me the
registered letter is now sending out resumes.
Also all expenses for my trip to Engand for the opening of the
Chamber of Secrets, and future Harry Potter movies will be paid by
WB for myself and seven friends, and I will see the movie with J K
Rowling's party. I will also get free DVD's of all the Harry Potter
Movies, as well as the LOTR series.
I call that a victory, allbeit a minor one.

Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
