comment Can Anybody Write an “Unauthorized” Guide?
The case was a victory from a fair use, as the Rowling's original claim was that no one could create anything based on the HP universe without her permission. The Lexicon authors lost because they had gone too far, not because of fair use, which I believe was your question.

comment Where do I fit in the future of publishing?
You need to rewrite the question: What degree you have, what interests you have, what sort of job you want. That's it. as it is, I can't make head or tails of your question

Janine, can you please make this clear: Are they offering you a print contract? What does "print Ebook" mean? Or should it have been "print, eBook and audio" ? :)

comment What factors to consider when choosing an e-book platform?
Good answer. Rights is the most important thing, as far too many scams, even run by "respectable" companies. See davidgaughran.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/…
