Apparently some stores accidently sold copies of the latest Harry Potter ahead of schedule:
That poor boy. He sounds like he is apologizing for a crime... reading a book which he bought! How dare him! Yes, the store goofed, but I sure as hell wouldn't return it. I would read it, and enjoy it. After all, that's what a book is for. Would I publish copies on the Internet? No, but I wouldn't normally do that anyway. As for owning the book ahead of time ruining for others... ummm... the simple solution to not ruining it for others is not to tell others what you read. Duh. I would hope you wouldn't do it even after the release date to people who haven't bought the book yet. And for a judge to decree that you're not allowed to read a book that you own before a certain date... are you kidding me? How Draconian is Canada going to get?
