Producers sue over Harry Potter condoms
London, Aug 20: Movie executives behind the successful Harry Potter franchise are taking legal action against a Swiss condom brand for allegedly naming their products after the boy wizard.
Bosses at the Warner Bros. studio filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the company making Harry Poppers, whose packets feature an illustration of a condom wearing round glasses and waving a magic wand, reports imdb.com.
The legal action is said to come in a bid to banish the brand from stores ahead of the release of the next installment of the movie franchise, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I”, in November.
A lawyer for Warner Bros. said: “The image of my client is in danger.”
