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 Working on New Book for HarperCollins

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 4, 2010

Governor Palin has contracted with HarperCollins for her second book, which will focus on America’s strenths and virtues.

USA TODAY reports:

Publisher HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate is working on a “celebration of American virtues and strengths.” The book is currently untitled and no release date has been set.

Palin’s memoir, Going Rogue, released last fall by HarperCollins, has sold more than 2 million copies. Her new work will “include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have inspired her, as well as portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her love of country, faith, and family,” the publisher’s statement reads. 

“She will also draw from her personal experience to amplify these timely — and timeless_ themes.” 

In an e-mail Wednesday, HarperCollins publisher Jonathan Burnham said that “a number of ideas and concepts” were explored with Palin. “This is the idea which appealed the most to her,” he said, adding that she is currently “gathering ideas and identifying favorite texts and examples.” 

Burnham declined comment on financial terms. As with Going Rogue, Palin was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose clients include President Obama and former President George W. Bush.
