it’s true: you can get, easily, a pirated copy of the new harry potter book.
you can’t keep information secret anymore: the only solution is to open it up and make it more availalble.
and also pointed out, the type of people who would bother downloading a .torrent of a new potter book will also be in line to buy it at midnight, so it’s not like the publisher’s going to lose money over this.
they ought to have released sneak-peak copies that were $10 and you get $5.00 off a hardcover, or something.
people like me would buy it twice, no problem.
