Jeff, I get these too, but there is always a preliminary email asking if I will honor the embargo before they send additional information. In about half the cases the embargo is a trick to make the product seem more interesting, in other cases there is some "there" there. I don't have any advice for you on whether to honor them or not. You are certainly under no legal obligation to.

As a blogger and journalist, this is one of my biggest pet peeves.

As I said on my blog after reading your post:

If you want something held by a reporter or blogger for a certain date, pick up the phone and negotiate with him or her individually. Otherwise, the information is free game.


Hi John,
Just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy your blog.
