Publishers aren’t the only big babies

The fallout over the New Yorker‘s decision to break an embargo to review The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo early is probably more entertaining than the movie is going to be. (Some commenter somewhere called it The Girl with the Thing on Her Arm, which I am immediately adopting). It is also convincing me that any kind of request for embargo might best be ignored. Not in the way the New Yorker did, which was to agree to the terms of an early preview and then renege on them, but to refuse any early copy that comes with strings attached.
