A Mistake in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?

Alright, so I haven't actually taken the time to research this idea, but I think that there may be one error in Deathly Hallows.

STOP READING THIS IF YOU ARE NOT AT LEAST HALF WAY THROUGH DEATHLY HALLOWS

Alright, so you know how in book six the spell that Dumbledore cast on Harry broke as soon as Dumbledore died? Does that mean that all spells are broken when the wizard casting it dies?

If so, how were Moody's spells protecting 12 Grimwald Place able to work?

Please explain.

I think it's all about what they had intended.

Moody intended for HQ to always be protected; Dumbledore only intended that Harry not interfere with what had to happen.

Moody is just like Frankenstein; HE LIVES!

But that's an excellent point, Angelo!

and the original protections of 12 Grimmauld Place were mostly made by Dumbledore, too.

It's very hard to create a magical universe that follows "laws." Same with creating sci-fi. Really tough.

Must be that some magic lives on and some spells break. Otherwise, even things like the Gryffindor sword couln't hold the magic centuries after its "owner" died.

Who decides which books get press (Harry Potter) and which get censored? After all, censorship is becoming America's favorite past-time. The US gov't (and their corporate friends), already detain protesters, ban books like "America Deceived" from Amazon and Wikipedia, shut down Imus and fire 21-year tenured, BYU physics professor Steven Jones because he proved explosives, thermite in particular, took down the WTC buildings. Free Speech forever (especially for books).
