Dobby the house-elf could be taken to court because some people think he looks like the Russian president.
They are angry because they think the filmmakers deliberately modelled Dobby on the face of Russia's boss, Vladimir Putin.
A Russian newspaper has even reported lawyers are preparing a legal case against the special effects people who created Dobby.

I guess I am going to have to sue God because he modelled me after Brad Pitt.

"They are angry because they think the filmmakers deliberately modelled Dobby on the face of Russia's boss, Vladimir Putin."
So what if they did? There's a law against this?
Anyway, Putin could do a great deal worse. He should be thankful they didn't make Lucius Malfoy look like him.
