Ms. Rowling and her husband, Dr. Neil Murray, released the following statement after the ruling:
We understand and accept that with the success of Harry Potter there will be a measure of legitimate media and public interest in Jo's professional activities and appearances.
However, we have striven to give our children a normal family life outside the media spotlight.
We are immensely grateful to the court for giving our children protection from covert, unauthorised photography; this ruling will make an immediate and material difference to their lives.
The case revolved around the publication of long-lens photographs taken of her son when he was 18 months old in 2004
