Is there no stopping advance screenings via the Internet 😆
Despite fort knox like security, Matrix Reloaded, The Hulk and (now) Harry Potter have risen like a phoenix. You can read about it here (scroll down)

this’ll make you laugh….considering how tight security is supposed to be around all aspects of these franchises, apparently someone’s managed to steal a lorry filled with copies of ‘Harry Potter and the order of the pheonix’ today. about £70 000 worth. the book’s not supposed to come out until saturday (longest day? hmmm…). they’re going to be charging anyone caught selling or buying the book…..17th June 2003 at 8:51 pm #66707AnonymousGuest
The REALLY surprising thing, is with all the theft, there’s not a SINGLE legit copy on the net.
I’ve checked Edonkey, the above link, Kazaa, et al, and have yet to find an authentic copy =/
Lots of fan fiction masquerading as the real deal, but when you see the author making easy grammatical errors and when the filter doesent show the lines from book V that were released by Rowling you know it’s fake.18th June 2003 at 7:48 pm #66725MeepParticipant
How much higher will the prices be when the book first comes out as compared to one year later? Just wondering how much I can save if I buy it a few months after the initial release. There will probably be so many fans lined up to buy the book, that you won’t be able to get it until a few weeks after the first shipment anyways 🙂19th June 2003 at 10:19 am #66736AnonymousGuest
I don’t know about anywhere else in the world, but when it gets released this Saturday, it’s going to cost AU$45 and it’s the same for pre-paid copies.
I’m personally going to wait ’til the price comes down, it should be significantly less in price than it is now.
After all, with the whole mania, it means that the fans will pay more money than usual – add that to it’s price for being new and it’s quite an amount. Now, in a year’s time when interest has died down (please translate: when nearly everyone has a copy) the price will lower itself because it’s no longer ‘new’ and interest has waned.
Perfect example: when the books came out originally over here they were about $20 each. Now they’re $9.95. Waiting saves money (if not time) 😀
