Tanya Grotter (in russo: Таня Гроттер?) è la protagonista femminile di una serie di romanzi fantasy russa di Dmitri Yemets. Tanya (abbreviazione di Tatiana) Grotter è un'orfana con molti fatti in comune con il personaggio creato da J. K. Rowling chiamato Harry Potter. Nonostante il successo in Russia, che ha portato alla creazione di vari sequel, la serie non è disponibile in inglese perché il primo libro è stato giudicato una violazione del copyright.

TramaModifica

Storia legaleModifica

Nel 2002 la casa editrice russa Eksmo cercò di esportare in Europa occidentale il volume, iniziando dai Paesi Bassi, dove i diritti furono acquistati dall'editore Byblos. I legali della Rowling portarono la questione di fronte alla corte di Amsterdam. La casa editrice olandese sosteneva che la streghetta russa fosse una parodia di Harry e quindi la pubblicazione fosse legittima. Ma ciò non convinse né il giudice di primo grado, né quello d’appello, che la ritennero invece un plagio. La Byblos fu perciò condannata alla refusione delle spese legali e non poté pubblicare il volume. [1]
