:cool: The final novel - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has stirred the book craze of the fans.... It has been ordered in millions even before it is launched.

Before the launch, it is being secured tightly by security guards and GPS (Global Positioning System) installed on the trucks that fetch the boxes of the books to the bookstores. The security guards check everywhere including the dust bin in the book warehouse to ensure the books are safe and not hidden everywhere.

Price war over Potter book leads to boycott
Malaysiakini
Jul 20

A price war has erupted in Malaysia over the final Harry Potter book a day before its release - leading four major bookstores to boycott its sale in protest, officials said today.


"Effective immediately, four major bookstore chains in Malaysia will no longer be selling Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in response to selected hypermarkets in Malaysia offering (the book at) RM69.90 from the recommended retail price of RM109.90 set by the sole distributor Penguin Books Malaysia," the bookstores said in a joint statement.

I am waiting for the day someone to scan the book and convert it into pdf format and produce the CD and price it RM 6.90 and I will find someone who is willing to lend me the CD to cut one myself at a cost of 69 sen. The day is not too far away.

If I disallow copyright violations, what make you think it is OK to offer such a book in this Forum?

I am making this public statement once and for all - in future, anyone offering pirated stuff on this Forum gets banned for at least a month from the Forum.
:mad:

It is not right to violate intellectual properties. If you become a writer or singer or composer or programmer one day, you will understand what I am talking about.
