The New York Times has decided that they are so above the rules that they can ignore the embargo on the most anticipated book of the century, and are running a review of the final Harry Potter volume in tomorrow's paper -- 48 hours before the book's release.
Many have waited ten years for this to arrive. The NYT, in a fit of "look what I can do that you can't!," has decided that they want to rub in your face the fact that they can get the book three days before you.
Pathetic. In my opinion, Rowling should sue.
