J.K. Rowling Grants Open License For Teachers To Read ‘Harry Potter’ During The Coronavirus Outbreak!

Potterheads, pull up a chair and gather around because though the world is leaning forward to the edge of hell, I am here to present you the wow-ness of reality – because lately, author J.K Rowling issued an open license to teachers, relaxing the copyright permissions on her Harry Potter series so they can read the books to kids while schools are closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The OFFICIAL guideline reports that the educators can now freely post clips of themselves reading the books aloud, and their learners can enjoy all the magic of Harry Potter without having to leave their own houses, or worry about copyright issues.

J.K. Rowling Declared About The Open License Last Week On Twitter:

According to the author’s website, the license is in effect until the end of the school year – and she requests teachers not to share their videos publicly on social networks.

Fans are expressing their gratitude on Twitter for Rowling’s generosity:

However, Rowling’s not the only one to lift copyright restrictions during the COVID-19 outbreak, but publications like Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, and Scholastic have also altered their copyright laws to allow teachers to read stories aloud to kids through their new remote learning environments.
