The final incarnation of the Harry1 Porter series comes out Friday at midnight. And its publisher is fighting an uphill battle against those who would reveal its secrets before the official release. CBS news correspondent Michelle Miller2 reports.

Even the tightest security couldn't keep the most secret of plots from getting out. It's still unclear if online bloggers spoil the surprise ending, but publishers of Harry Porter and the Deathly Hallows want mug blood.

Scholastic3 Inc. is taking a legal action against online retailer4 DeepDiscount.com and distributor Levy5 Home Entertainment for breach6 of contract. Blame it on muggles or in this case, the mail, more than a thousand of the seventh and final installment7 of Harry saga8 were preshipped to buyers before they're agreed upon July 28th's mailing.

"I think it would be difficult to show that somehow, because you released the book earlier, some consumers aren't gonna purchase the book."

Scholastic even obtained subpoenas9 to pull digital images of what appears to be pages of the book off two San Francisco websites.

"We really encouraged everyone to ingore spoilers and read, discover the magic for themselves."

While booksellers offer damage control, the book's author is posting her own plea. J.K. Rowling wrote Wednesday on her website: Ignore the misinformation. Help preserve the secrecy10 of the plot. (Fans: Thank you so much! I love you~~!) Keeping plotlines of some books' secret has proven to be nearly impossible over the years as for the wizard's tried and true fans.

"Let everyone find out on their own, that's how I feel. You, I don't, I don't like this, you know, coming out, giving a little hints, like, what may happen. I want to see for myself."

The final chapter of the fantasy adventure is well worth the wait. Michelle Miller, CBS news, New York.

And author J.K. Rowling has already divulged11 that two main characters will die in the final book.


----------------------------------------------
muggle: Muggle is a word used in the Harry Potter series of books by J. K. Rowling to refer to a person who does not have magical abilities. The word was used in popular culture and literature prior to the usage by J. K. Rowling. However, the Harry Potter series popularised the word and it has come into common usage. The word "muggle" was added to the Oxford12 English Dictionary in 2003, where it is said to refer to a person who is lacking a skill.
