About the Dedication:

To Neil, Jessica and David,
who make my world magical.

Neil is Dr. Neil Murray, JKR's husband. Jessica and David are her children. Jessica has the singular distinction of being the first person to appear in two of Jo's dedications -- she was mentioned in the dedication of book one.

The battle in the Atrium of the Ministry of Magic appears on the back cover, with the symbol-filled ceiling and the gold statues of the Fountain of Magical Brethren. Harry and Dumbledore are seen amidst waves of water, wands out and ready.

The moral right of the author has been asserted

The "WEB LINKmoral right" which Rowling is claiming is part of the European copyright law. It allows Rowling to maintain a level of control over the Harry Potter stories, characters, etc. even though she has sold rights to Warner Bros. and other companies, and is therefore a very good thing for the integrity of the Harry Potter stories. This moral right is not recognized by the United States, although some US copyright law does approximate the moral right clause of the Berne Convention.
