I am a little weirded out by the media attention. I mean, it'd make more sense to go, "No, we don't believe there are any genuine spoilers." By countenancing them and giving the media lawsuit stories to play with, they're actually causing more people to get spoiled, and others to go look for the downloads. Still, I guess they feel they have to do something to save face. And maybe they're hoping the media frenzy will generate more sales- be free advertising, essentially. But if the motive was protecting the public from spoilers, then freaking out and bringing out the lawyers was the WRONG move.
I agree, I don't think Scholastic has handled this very well. I mean, accidentally sending out copies almost a week early???

It would have been a lot smarter to play them off as a hoax or something. And hell, maybe it IS all a hoax intended to generate more sales ;) Like the gal on FNC said, there's really no such thing as bad publicity.
