Harvard Coop calls cops on students who wrote down textbook ISBNs - Boing Boing

Harvard Coop calls cops on students who wrote down textbook ISBNs - Boing Boing

Harvard has declared comparison shopping illegal

that's right

4 kids, went into the Harvard bookstore, to see what text books they need.

They wanted to write down the ISBN # of these books, so they could see prices elsewhere

Harvard claims that ISBN #'s are property in and of themselves, and called the police to have the people removed.
