JK Rowling wins privacy complaint

Publishing a photograph of JK Rowling's London home was a breach of her privacy and risked her personal security, according to a ruling from the Press Complaints Commission in favour of the Harry Potter author. The Daily Mirror published the photo with an article on 14th July that also named the street. Ms Rowling complained that it gave sufficient information to identify the exact location of her property. She was particularly concerned because of threats made against her in the past. JK Rowling wins privacy complaint against Daily Mirror | OUT-LAW.COM
