Potter characters can be used till puja: HC

October 12, 2007 13:46 IST

The Delhi high court on Friday refused to restrain a Kolkata-based Durga pooja committee from using the images of Harry Potter characters during the nine-day festival.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, however, made it clear that the court's order would be applicable till October 26, saying, "Any (further) use of these characters will be subject to the prior permission of the author of Harry Potter [Images] series, J K Rowling [Images]."

The court also directed the pooja committee to file an undertaking stating that they would not use any character from the book without permission in future.
