Leveson Inquiry: after Harry Potter I felt like a hostage, says JK Rowling
The author told the Leveson Inquiry into media ethics that she had fought a running battle with the media to protect her privacy and particularly that of her three children, taking legal action more than 50 times in 14 years.
Despite her best efforts, she had been unable to prevent private pictures of her daughter going around the world like a virus on the internet.
After taking an oath under her full name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling, the 46-year-old writer said she was a passionate believer in the freedom of the press and saluted truly heroic journalists who risked their lives to expose the truth about war and famine.
