A Hairy Moment...Fourteen Harrys Sold in Error

Canada.com brings us the story of how a bookseller in Coquitlam inadvertantly (so they say) sold fourteen copies of the new Harry Potter.

Raincoast Books won a B.C. Supreme Court injunction Saturday that forbids copying or disclosing any part of the book before 12.01 a.m., July 16.

Geoff Wilson, a spokesman for the Loblaw Companies Ltd., said an employee at its Great Canadian Superstore subsidiary accidentally sold the copies without being aware of a worldwide publicity machine that demands intense security around the book.
