A question for lawyers about Mary Trump and the confidentiality agreement

The confidentiality agreement was between Mary Trump and the other family members. Simon & Schuster was not part of the agreement, so how can they be prevented from the publishing the book? I can understand how Mary Trump can be held responsible for giving the book to the publisher. But once the publisher has the book in their possession don't they have the right to publish it since they never agreed not to? How can Simon & Schuster be bound by an agreement that they had no part in?

Worst slogan ever - "Defund the Police"

Defund the Police is a poorly worded slogan. When people hear it they immediately think you want to get rid of all police. Then you have to go into a lengthy explanation of what it actually means. Giving people the wrong first impression and then trying to persuade them about what you really meant is not a winning strategy.

For a slogan to be effective it has to be very simple, clear, and optimistic. For example, consider these presidential campaign slogans;
A Time For Greatness
Morning in America
"Kinder, Gentler Nation"
"Change We Can Believe In"

I suggest replacing Defund the Police with Reinvent the Police. This conveys a message of positive change, not a scary image of society without law enforcement.
