Pirate translation of Harry Potter also hits Russia

Harry Potter finds no time to rest. First he was electronized within hours after the official release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, then some dimwits sold illegal copies on eBay, while at the same time a couple of German zealots professionally translated the English copy into German (and kept the translation to themselves, at least). Now Moscow Times reports that an unauthorized Russian Half-Blood Prince translation has been posted on Russian websites:

Quote:
Russian readers were able to devour an unauthorized translation of the 672-page book's first chapter for free on certain web sites as early as July 18. Three more chapters followed the next day on one of the sites, http://book6.potterfilmru.net.
Poor Rowling and her lawyer friends from Baker & McKenzie, who will have a hard time convincing Russian Potter fans to remove the translations from the Net. Under Russian law they don't constitute a violation of the publisher's rights.

LOL ... check out the site posted: Book6.potterfilmru.net doesn't do anything of the sort, in terms of having anything available. Further, Altavista babelfish can't (or won't) translate the page.

WorldLingo works to translate that. I've given up on the "normal" translation engines now, and use WorldLingo and InterTran exclusively.
