The controversy over Sarah Palin’s pages

Los Angeles Times – “Last week, culture-watching website Gawker learned not to make a mama grizzly angry. With a large helping of its trademark snarky commentary, it posted scanned pages from Sarah Palin’s upcoming book, "America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag," online on Wednesday. "Isn’t that illegal?" Palin tweeted. Is it? Gawker claimed fair use — pointing to the Fair Use Wikipedia page and the Stanford University Libraries’ definition — but the matter isn’t all that straightforward. As one of Gawker’s commenters pointed out, because the book has not yet been published, fair use may not apply.”
