The Legal Brawl Over Sarah Palin's Book

Book2Book - Tuesday 23 Nov 2010

Last week, HarperCollins sued the website Gawker because they posted 21 pages of Sarah Palin's book, America by Heart, which hits store shelves today. A day later, a federal judge ordered the site to take down the unauthorized excerpts.

The case pits Gawker's claim of fair use against HarperCollins' argument of copyright infringement. Although fair use is a complicated and subjective issue, copyright lawyers say Gawker has a tough case ahead of them.
