Harry Potter condom controversy

Because when I think Harry Potter… I think condoms. At least that is what the Swiss condom manufacturing company, Magic X, thinks. The company is being sued by Warner Brothers over their brand of “Harry Popper” condoms, which feature a cartoon condom on the front dressed in glasses and holding a wand. “The image of my client is in danger,” said a lawyer for Warner Bros. “This is clearly a reference to the film and fictional character Harry Potter.” I find it rather normal that 1) condoms are being named after children’s books characters 2) that the word “popper” is being used to sell/describe the product.
