Security How-To

July 12, 2005

Now our government can’t even keep the identity of its spies a secret, because outting them is so much more fun in order to stab someone in the back for having an opinion contrarty to your own [thanks Mr. Rove].  But it seems the publishing industry knows how to get things done when it comes to preventing and containing leaks.

Blogging Baby — Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince cover

One source said it was accidental, another didn’t mention how it happened – but either way, several copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince were sold at a bookstore in Canada last week. The Canadian distributor of the Potter franchise, Raincoast Books Ltd, brought a quick injunction against the lucky few who had purchased the book, barring them from releasing any plot details.

Rowling-autographed nameplate to each of the leakees when the books go on sale for real July 16.
