Rowling: 'I may kill off Harry Potter'

"J.K Rowling has given her strongest hint yet that she is planning to kill off the young wizard who has made her a multimillionaire."

Riiight. Unless she's just tired of writing her incredibly lucrative book series, I don't see that happening. But, as she mentions in the story, it would be a good way to ensure the Harry Potter brand dies with her. This would make it difficult for anyone to resurrect him after she's gone.

My personal educated opinion: It's a clver marketing ploy to ensure greater success with the last few books to be released and to increase the sales of those previously released.
