UK Press Complaints Commission reject privacy complaint from JK Rowling today reports the PCC has rejected a privacy complaint against three national newspapers made by JK Rowling because details they had reported had already been widely available online.
Rowling had complained, through solicitors Schillings, about articles in the Daily Mirror, Daily Record and the Mail on Sunday.

She complained that the papers had, in stories published last October, violated her privacy under Clause 3 of the Code by identifying the location of a property she had bought in Perthshire.
But the PCC found that the newspapers had not been responsible for putting new material into the public domain.

Read the report in full.
