French police briefly detained a 16-year-old boy who posted an unauthorized translation of the latest Harry Potter book online, a prosecutor said Wednesday.
The high school student from the southern city of Aix-en-Provence was picked up Monday following a complaint from police in Paris, said Aix Prosecutor Olivier Rothe. The boy was released Tuesday after questioning.
Rothe said judicial police in Paris were conducting an investigation and that the boy could face charges for violating intellectual property rights.
