Scholastic Freaks Over Harry Potter, Threatens To Sue TechCrunch, et al

New York-based Harry Potter publisher Scholastic has sent out a barrage of “copyright infringement” notices, including one to TechCrunch, whose sin was merely noting that the new book was available on BitTorrent.  Scholastic’s outrage notwithstanding, it’s a miracle that it took as long for the book to find its way online as it did.  So they can’t be serious, can they?  Apparently, they can.  Photo: TechCrunch
