Harry Potter

The level of secrecy surrounding the latest Harry Potter book is huge. Yet, someone has supposedly managed to get their hands on a copy and photographed every page. Those pages have appeared on the internet, although the publisher’s agents are obtaining court orders to get them removed.

I did not realize it, but in January last year, a British resident was sentenced to a prison term of almost five years after he pleaded guilty to stealing two copies of Half-Blood Prince from a Bloomsbury storage depot six weeks before its 2005 publication. The thief subsequently tried to blackmail the publisher and get British newspapers to buy the books.
