And now I am seeing people saying that her name should be removed from all Harry Potter materials because of the above controversy.

Um ... that's not how the law works. At all.

It's already caused some problems for licensed works. WB's trying to figure out how to develop a Harry Potter game while staying as far away from Rowling as possible. A Harry Potter board game just completely tanked on Kickerstarter as well. Her brand is losing some of it's sheen.

Hard to know whether it's the trans issue or just ... time.

Or, in the case of that game, the cost. The price of the BASIC game was $120. The fancier edition was $350.

For a board game.

Also, TBH, I was amazed that many of the Potter things that were developed after the movies ended -- sometimes LONG after the movies ended -- were as successful as they were.
