Reading ban on leaked Harry Potter

"Fourteen fans bought Harry Potter and the Half–Blood Prince from The Real Canadian Superstore in Coquitlam on the west coast of Canada before managers realised their mistake [selling books that were under embargo]. But readers will be unable to share their knowledge after Raincoast Books, the book's Canadian publisher, was granted a 'John Doe' injunction prohibiting the buyers from even reading their copies before the publication date.

The supreme court of British Columbia issued a court order preventing anyone from 'displaying, reading, offering for sale, selling or exhibiting in public' their books. J. K. Rowling's legal advisers said that the author was entitled to prevent buyers from reading their own books even though they had not broken the law.

'The fact is that this is property that should not have been in their possession,' said Neil Blair, a legal specialist for Christopher Little, the author's literary agent. 'Copyright holders are entitled to protect their work. If the content of the book is confidential until July 16, which it is, why shouldn't someone who has the physical book be prevented from reading it and thereby obtaining the confidential information? How they came to have access to the book is immaterial'."

Learning Objects for Design (Formalism)

"'Learning Objects in Design: Written Refocalization' is a learning object for design education. A learning object for design (LOD) is comprised of the modules: concept; interpretation (examples that are interpretations of the concept(s)); design task; proto design; critique guide; resources. When delivered as a web site, as opposed to through a learning delivery system, the LOD also includes an index page. The learning object provides a design problem that embodies one or more design concepts. The student takes a partially completed design and completes it. Further, the student critiques the designs of other students according to an included critique guide. 'Learning Objects in Design: Refocalization' uses the design concepts: focus and refocalization. Its design task requires students to rewrite a story around a secondary character."

(Robert Woodbury, Steven Forth, Cheryl Qian, David Botta, Ben Lin)
