WARNER BROS. Takes Legal Action Over ‘Harry Potter’ Condoms!

By on 20 August, 2010

Movie execs at Warner Bros. are foaming at the mouth (and not in a good way) because a Swiss condom brand has loosely named their products after Harry Potter.  

Studio bosses are said to have filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the company making Harry Poppers, which feature an illustration of a condom wearing round glasses and waving a magic wand on the packet (pictured above).

The legal action, reported by Swiss newspaper Bote, 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‘, this November.

A lawyer for Warner Bros. tells Bote:

“The image of my client is in danger.”
