Harry Potter and the Deathly Lawyers

From:       The Improper Use of Celebration Office

Dear Independent Bookseller:
We have received intelligence that at twenty-six minutes past eleven o'clock on the evening of July twentieth, you are planning an improper moment of enthusiasm as part of your event for the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." Your plan to have a nearby coffee shop sell butterbeer for profit at that moment is a serious breach of the Decree to Prevent Unauthorized Profits by Unsanctioned Entities.
