Gov. Palin’s publisher sues Gawker for copyright infringement

Posted by joshpainter on November 20, 2010

HarperCollins, the publisher of Sarah Palin’s forthcoming second book, filed a federal lawsuit against Gawker Media Friday for leaking pages of America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag ahead of its November 23 release date:

Two days before the Manhattan filing, gutter website Gawker published images of more than 20 of the open book’s pages. Gov. Palin tweeted Thursday, “Isn’t that illegal?”

Her publisher contends it is. The lawsuit asks that Gawker be banned from what it terms “further copyright infringement” and that Gawker deliver the source material to the publisher so it can be destroyed. HarperCollins is also seeking financial damages.

Gawker did not immediately respond to e-mails seeking comment Friday evening, but an item published the day before and titled “Sarah Palin Is Mad at Us for Leaking Pages From Her Book” defended the blog’s actions and linked to websites defining the fair use doctrine of copyright law.

The blog was not the first site to publish excerpts from the book, which has been billed as a tribute to American values, but it refused to take them down after receiving a letter demanding that it do so, the lawsuit said. The Associated Press bought a copy of the book ahead of its Nov. 23 release date.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate’s first book, the memoir Going Rogue: An American Life, has sold over 2.7 million copies.

Sarah Palin Will Be a Featured Author at Barbara Bush’s Annual “Celebration of Reading” Event

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 19, 2010

Governor Palin will be one of the featured authors at the Celebration of Reading event in Houston on April 22. Barbara Bush and former president George H. W. Bush will be hosting the event.

They’re kicking up their heels at the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation for Family Literacy offices with announcement that former vice presidentialcandidate, Fox News commentator and author Sarah Palin will be among the published writers of note to make presentations at the Celebration of Reading.

Politics notwithstanding, those who’ve seen Palin in person report that she is a charismatic figure not to be missed. And if you loved Palin going rogue on the campaign trail, we bet you’ll love her even more as she comments on her life and reads from her book, Going Rogue. Mark your calendars for the April 22 benefit at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts….

The event regularly packs the theater and brings in close to $2 million annually.

Tickets are priced from $150 for the program and a commendable cold supper that follows in the theater foyer. Tables for eight begin at $5,000. For ticket information, call 713-467-2812 or email
