Top businessman calls for companies to spurn 'weirdo' high-flying graduates

"Rory Sutherland, vice president of leading marketing and communications company Ogilvy Group UK, said there was no evidence that those with the top class degrees made better employees, but often the reverse was true

Mr Sutherland, who graduated from Cambridge with a 2:2 in classics, argues that often people with mediocre degrees actually turn into better employees. ...

It comes after fertility expert Robert Winston said those that have fallen short of academic brilliance are often better employees because they are more rounded individuals who work well in a team."

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'."
