Warner Bros. swiped our Harry Potter wand IP: Kano

Share via:

Venture-backed British startup Kano, known for its build-your-own computer kits and software for teaching coding and related STEM skills, has accused Warner Bros. of stealing one of its products and infringing on its intellectual property (IP).

The product in question is the Harry Potter: Magic Caster Wand, which Warner Bros. announced in October and began shipping to customers in the United States and United Kingdom for $150 just before Christmas. London-based Kano issued a “cease and desist” letter to Warner Bros. this week, which TechCrunch obtained, requesting that the media and entertainment conglomerate halt its marketing and promotional efforts.
