Lecturer in Law and Executive Director of the Fair Use Project Anthony Falzone is quoted in the Los Angeles Times about the Harry Potter Lexicon case the project is involved in:

In his closing remarks, Anthony T. Falzone, with the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society, said RDR Books is protected by "fair use" law -- which permits titles based on copyrighted material to be published as long as they add to the text in a "transformative" way. The book that Rowling wants to quash, Falzone argued, "just isn't a book that should disappear." A decision to kill it, defenders said, could have a chilling effect.
