PALINGATES HIT A NERVE - LETTER FROM HARPER COLLINS! - UPDATE!

For all newcomers who visit this site now: PLEASE look at our "babygate" documentation - it is a FACT that Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy with Trig - CLICK HERE!

+++

Oh, I feel honored, I got an email from a very important person!

Christopher Goff, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Harper Collins wrote to me:

I act as legal counsel to HarperCollins Publishers. I have just learned that you have posted a substantial excerpt from our as yet unpublished book, Going Rogue, by Sarah Palin, on your web site. We view your posting of this excerpt as an infringement of our and Governor Palin's exclusive rights under copyright. Accordingly, we demand that you remove it from your web site.

Christopher Goff

Senior Vice President & General Counsel
HarperCollins Publishers
10 East 53rd Street
New York, NY 10022
Voice: 212 207 7127

Fax: 212 207 7552









So, in order not to be impolite to "Governor Palin", we deleted the scans of the pages we had posted.

But I have an open question for Christopher Goff:

Are you only going after anti-Palin bloggers?

"Wonkette" has posted three full pages of the book - did they receive a letter from you, too?

The "Drudge Report" has posted the content of three full pages - did they receive a letter from you, too?

On many other websites, the content of the book was discussed and extensive parts have already been published - did they all receive a letter from you, too?

By the way, Christopher: Maybe it would have been a good idea to do some basic fact-checking before publishing this "Book of Lies" which you have named "Going Rogue" - then all this trouble could have been easily avoided!

And Christopher: Can you please tell your author Sarah Palin that we are still waiting for a letter from a lawyer regarding babygate - regarding the FACT that Sarah Palin has faked her pregnancy with Trig. We have been waiting for over a year now!

+++

UPDATE:

Wonkette told me that they have NOT received a message from Harper Collins so far. They have published five scanned pages of "Going Rogue"!

It seems that Harper Collins doesn't like it if BLOGGERS go rogue on them!

After all, Wonkette was starting to put the excerpts up before we did!

+++

UPDATE 2:

Wonkette linked to us!




Andrew Sullivan
linked to us!



Look at the "Feedjit" at the right hand side! It's going crazy!

For all newcomers who visit this site now: PLEASE look at our "babygate" documentation - it is a FACT that Sarah Palin has faked her pregnancy with Trig - CLICK HERE!


+++

UPDATE 3:


Harper Collins has also sent an email to our friend Celtic Diva, who had posted several pages of "Going Rogue" on her website, which I had provided to her.

+++

UPDATE 4:

This is the paragraph in Sarah Palin's book which caused so much discussion in the comments and which mentions a particular event regarding her first miscarriage:

"Todd flew home to be with me, when I had the D&C. When the doctor's bill arrived in our mailbox, it came with a typo. In the box describing the procedure, someone had typed, "Abortion." Instead of starting over with a fresh form, they painted it over with a thin-layer of Wite-Out, and retyped, "Miscarriage". For some reason it just felt like salt in the wound." (p.56, "Going Rogue")

Wonkette is pretty anti-Palin. Just saying.

You were in violation of copyright. I did sound an alert, however, I do not take any credit for what happened. It was inevitable.

It seems I was right about the copyright, however.

hmmmm.......Wonkette's pages from the book are still on their website. Perhaps they haven't received a letter.

Does Harper Collins hates blogggers?

Jesse Cornish, thanks a lot for providing us with such great PR! I love you, I hope you know that!

I think that the distinction is clear

Wonkette is not a blog it is a very powerful website. Palingates is a voluntary blog run by volunteers. The volunteers do not make any money from this venture. Wonkette does.

Drudge is a right wing website.

Patrick's point is very well made.

If they only sent a letter to PG, they are in violation of fair use act.

sjk from the belly of the plane said...

from sea of peeeeeee:

Governor Palin writes in her book: “As governor I directed our attorney general to file an amicus brief on behalf of plaintiffs in the case, and, thanks to Alaska’s able attorneys arguing in front of the highest court in our land, in 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the people. Finally, Alaskans could recover some of their losses.”

harper collins dung head counsel, please cease and desist the sea of peeeeee NOW!

Per Wonkette: We’re confident at this point that Going Rogue is worse than we’d imagined. Wow.

All of their posts about GR are hilarious, btw. I hope that if they have received a letter (which I suspect they have) they'll keep the commentaries up.

Anonymous said...

I don't know that you would have been proved in violation in a court, fair use. If others don't pull theirs it is an indication their lawyers vetted what they post.

You did the best thing.
You are NUMERO UNO!

Anonymous said...

You were not right, Jesse.

HC sees this as a violation of copyright and, if he wanted to, Patrick could claim otherwise (under Fair Use).

HC did not say this IS a violation. They say they SEE THIS AS a violation.

Can you tell the difference, Jesse? Can you?

WalterNeff said...

There is no fair use "act" - it's a doctrine - their lawyer is correct: you published quite a bit of that book. I'll bet he did send notices to the others; your posting was pretty egregious. However - more power to you.

Oh gleee.. this is good!

Sarah is such a dweeb.. doesn't she have any sort of life outside of her pretend politics?

I mean, hello, it is a SUNDAY.. she should be focused on her family, a hobby, heck anything.. but instead she is flapping her fingernails on another FB wah wah rant..

Is her identity so enmeshed with only her media status?
Is she truly that shallow?
Quite pathetic.. can't she just enjoy life? she has a book tour to look forward to.. blah blah
but nope

I can see her pacing in circles, eyes getting beadier by the second, locked in a room with just her laptop FB page open..

Kids at the door, Mom? are you in there? hello, Mom?

and then clack clack clack!!
good lawdy that woman truly is a piece of work..

Just hearing about how she responds to things stresses ME out! I couldn't imagine being in her tight little wad she lives in.. no wonder Todd and Willow bailed..

Ah, the sound of rushing typing as vast armies of hither-to uninformed curiousity seekers clatter over to PALINGATES. They just needed a little nudge from Harper Collins to come and peruse the treasures herein.

WELCOME all.

Anonymous said...

Posting the scans does make it more "real," but what you can do in the future is type out excerpts with your commentary interspersed. Even yesterday, a more sensational post would have been to quote the sentence where she wrote that she had the D&C, then point out that that is an abortion.

Congratulations. Harper Collins thinks you are a target worthy of legal intimidatiion.

Jesse, what did Daffy duck do with his tongue. I can't find the right word?

You are sooooooo knowledgable.

Leadfoot said...

Well, since Mr. Goff so graciously included his phone number, I think I will call him and request that he actually read Palingates so he can enlighten himself as to the facts surrounding all Sarah Palin-related scandals. I might also suggest they pull the book that has now been proven to be completely fictional.

While I'm at it, I might also fax over the photos missing from the book. You know - the ones where SP clearly is NOT pregnant 3 weeks before "giving birth." Bree's photo line-ups should do the trick.

A phone/fax campaign might not make them pull the book. But it will be fun, nonetheless!

At least Goff "asked" and didn't threaten like Palin's attorney Van Flee would have. Harper Collins better get their cyber police out there full force, to clarify these infringements.

ArmchairJane said...

HAHAHAHAHA! As usual, Palin can't resist hitting back, even when the end result makes her look even worse.

Seems some commenting think that if a lawyer sends a letter stating their opinion that something is a violation, it's the same as if it is proven in a court of law!

Guess we don't need courts now, since the lawyer letters just prove things? Just like all those threats to sue that she never followed through on?

We can discuss the key passages as much as we want, even without the page scans up. Congratulations, Patrick, that this little ol' blog is apparently worthy of such attention from on high! And I do wonder if everyone who posts pages will get this treatment? We shall see ;-)

$P seems to be melting down: generating even more bad PR for herself, sending people to the Ocean of Urine from her FB page, wonder what the next stunt will be? If she makes a fool out of herself in the Oprah or Barbara Walters interviews, it will be (all together now!) *because of the gotcha questions!*. Oh, and of course it will have been somebody else's idea that she had to go on those shows if it turns out poorly. If she likes the result, why then of course it was all her idea from the start!

Harper Collins is po'd because Palin used them much like everyone else she has come in contact with. Her book has been thoroughly debunked and a collection of myths and flat out lies, but they bought a book and here it is. By publishing it, they are simply trying to get some of their money back.

I read that the books were shipped out to be received by bookstores by last Wednesday, so they can be put on the shelves. So, what's up with "not yet published?"

It is "Fair Use" to use a certain amount of text in order to do a book review. I've seen a few sources that say you can use 1000 words or 10% of the total for a review, but will do a bit more research to see if I can find something definitive about Fair Use in connection with a book review.

This is the lull before the storm. Mr. Goff will be too busy in the upcoming weeks to write this type of letter as people start suing Palin for her unsubstantiated claims. Bwahhhhhh!

MarvinM said...

Oh nuts, due to my lack of experience posting here, I am not going to be able to do all the links to prove my point, but just google "Fair Use" and "copyright law" and you will find that people have the right to use portions of people's written copyrighted work for the purposes of criticism, which is exactly what is being done here.

What was posted was NOT a substantial portion of the work, and it WAS legitimately criticized.

This totally falls under Fair Use laws, and the HarperCollins lawyer knows that (if he really was who he says he was...) He is just trying to intimidate people into doing what he wants them to do.

As a musician I am a big champion of copyright law and have my own opinions about Fair Use (generally, I think it is too lax), but even I cannot see how your putting a couple of pages of her book online, with relevant accompanying criticism of it, is not Fair Use under current copyright law.

honestyinGov said...

Patrick.
The fact that HC singled you out proves that you got under their skin. It also means that they ( and maybe Sarah even Sarah herself )is obsessed with what the blogs are writing about the book. It brings up and proves/makes an even bigger point of how ' petty & childish ' they are. You must be doing something right. This is a compliment.

I agree with the others posted. Make the point of their hypocrisy and petty whining the bigger story rather than the scans. AP had that long list of people working the story posted on Huffpo. AP should definitely be informed of the email. Andrew Sullivan is National and needs to be informed also. This just further backs up his statement made by Him that Sarah was obsessed with His Blog. And she is STILL obsessed with the blogs. He needs a good laugh as well. Andrew will run with it. Get ready for heavy traffic coming your way.

With the divorce, Sarah has either given up her presidential ambitions -- a story about a month or two in the Nat'l Examiner (not Enquirer) basically stated that they would maintain a sham marriage until the presidency thing was decided -- or is aware that babygate is going to break. Since there is an affair involved (sarah is heartbroken) I am curious as to whether Trig is Todd's child with another woman, assuming that what the Enquirer is reporting is accurate.

BREAKING NEWS:

The noted investigative blog "Palingates" just arrived! They're on Palin's Enemies List now, too.

In the last day or so, they'd received scanned copies of several pages of Palin's book via e-mail, and uploaded these scans for readers to see and comment on, along with their own analysis of the contents of the pages.

A troll who'd been following the discussion contacted HarperCollins, and one of HC's crack legal team apparently got on the e-mail trail and told them to cease and desist because it's a "violation of copyright", or else. The troll admits it, so there's no question there...

Anyway, someone pointed out that the posting and analysis is a frequently-used and legal tool under the Fair Use Doctrine, and that what Palingates was engaging in was a book review. To quote one commenter: "...people have the right to use portions of people's written copyrighted work for the purposes of criticism, which is exactly what is being done here."

Palin probably called HC, and they tried to explain to her that it was good publicity, because it increases interest in the book. But they had a hard time talking her down, just like her staff would have had a hard time during the VP campaign, so they caved just to humor her. She may not have much hair left after realizing that she gave away the abortion story.

Patrick (or anyone), if you do email the guy at HC, you might want to point out that it's possible that p. 225 of the Rogue book contains six paragraphs. Three of thos paragraphs are direct quotes from a speech by John McCain. Is Harper Collins violating the rights granted by copyright to John McCain and his speechwriters? Did they grant permission for use in the book?

Anonymous said...

There was a story about Sarah's Second Coming (no kidding), at c4p, where Jesse posted a link to palingates and suggested that others check out the "copyright violation." Adrienne the author of that story told him that she didn't approve, because she didn't want to send traffic to palingates. Some people visited palingates from the link that Jesse provided.

Entities that produce protected material, be it the illustrious Harper Collins or an upstart adult video franchise, use computer programs to scam the web for possible infringement. Hundreds of thousands of such cease and desist letters are sent daily, and are, by and large, toothless.

Mr. Cornish, despite his pitiful attempts, remains as impotent as ever. My heart is starting to break for the man, though. One has to feel compassion for an individual with so little going for him that his best hope at ingratiating himself with the Snowbillies is to “tattle” on a hostile website.

One or two words of well meaning advice - get personally untangled from Palin's bow-wow of a book ASAP and run, don't walk, as far away from Sarahpatra as you possibly can. She has the touch that turns gold into turds.

Anonymous said...

@game hen, lol. You are so right. I think "impotent" hit the nail on the head. Did you see the recent research re the average Fox viewer being old men who can no longer.... hence the cute political porn chicks and the PalinLieapooloza fest they have there.

Does she love you now, Jessie? Maybe now she'll let you carry her books to class before snickering under her breath about what a loser you are.

Poor little toadie. But hark! I hear a divorce is on the horizon! Gather your wooing tools and set your sights on your second coming angel of darkness!

There's always a shining light at the end of a misguided and misinformed mission, friend. One day, you might fall in love with a woman for more than her looks.

As God would wish.

Either Goff is too clueless to glance over the palingates site or he has a secret desire to publicize all the gates. We'll never know. But the net (heh, heh) effect of his letter can not conceivably be a good thing for Palin land. Thanks, jesse.

Jesse "I never said I contacted Harper Collins" Cornish - ummmm, and you did not brag about it at c4pee last night either, huh? I see the bragging, the contact info for HC, and related posts by the sheeple who followed you off of this cliff have (surprise!) disappeared.
Don't fret - if they stone you to death per Old Testament rulings, we will still allow you to post here - we tend to "turn the other cheek" vs "hang 'em high."

I was talking about SP with my husband last night and he just can't understand how the Trig thing has not come out. I've shown him the pictures, otherwise he doesn't know much (other than the wild ride story). He suggested that a really good timeline with pictures and events be created because when I try to explain the story to him he's baffled.

Sarah's probably screaming for a rewrite now that her abortion story is out. But, I betcha, Rupert Murdoch will tell her, "We got a contract, lady."

So, can you repost the bit about the abortion, Patrick? 'cuz, I kinda think that's the part that hit the nerve. And surely a tidbit won't be objectionable to the HC people.

IF we all promised to buy the book, I'm sure they'd gladly sell out the Snow Grifter's abortion.

IF McCain doesn't beat them to it. ha ha ha ha. Who will get her first?

Let's see. Her enemies list is SO long! How does such a relatively young person get such a long enemies list? Also, too, I must reiterate that her plastic surgery break could have been better served had she been hospitalized for her mental illness.

I mean, all of this could have been avoided....so sad.

Psst: Schmidt: We know you know. Don't forget to leak the medications she's on....you know, the ones that required you to feed her Atkins bars to keep a synapse firing in that pea brain!

Oh, no way! WV: Aryin (Aryan). So true. White supremacists AIP members whose idea of "america" is not like yours and mine! Down with tyranny!

Yes, indeed, they should be concerned with libel suits instead of this grade-school bullying. Pfffft.

And to think they were once a reputable publisher ... sad.

The trolls who worry about us "tearing down a woman and her family" should be more concerned with our country. She just cannot help but inject herself via FB into issues we face as a nation. And THAT's why we want her to go down and (hopefully) in jail, where she belongs. That is the danger ... not whether or not she had an abortion, and yes, she did ... but she doesn't want any other woman to have that choice. What a crazy, dangerous Bitch!

Jessie, when you get your date with the Snow Queen, just remember that an older woman can be sensitive about things like her surgery scars and double chin. The Mommie Makeover leaves a lot of heavy scars around the belly area. If you want a second date, don't hit on Bristol. Sure, she's of age, and she worked for that sex company Candies, but still. Downloaded porn statistics show that it is highest in red states and among "religious" men. Keep it clean, son.

In other words, don't follow your leaders. But I hear Carrie Prejean is....available. for a solo run. And she sexts after one date-- great video! free!

In Jesus' name, of course. You heathen sinners!

How can there be a copywrite violation, if the quotes are attributed properly?

Just blockquotes,palingates ... and give the source. Maybe it's the 'scanned' pages they don't like ... because then they can't whine that it's out of context?

Huffington post has NOT taken theirs down and there are MANY .. in fact you should post this whole thing, including the email, on every thread that has quotes over there!

The NYTimes also quotes from the book.

You are right, they didn't stop the Palinbot sites, or the 'big guys' from posting excerpts.

I don't see any problem, if it's attributed.

Anonymous said...

Why doesn't Sarah put the rumors to rest for the sake of her child? The ADN gave her every opportunity. For someone who demanded to see the marriage certificate of her opponent as Mayor, insinuating that he wasn't really married or Christian, she sure refused to provide Trig's birth certificate.

There's no reason why she wouldn't, unless she can't.

And what's this about a bill for an abortion?!? NO doctor bills for an abortion when a person had a miscarriage. She had an abortion.

She's a hypocrite, a sociopath, and a liar. wonder how those right to life groups feel about her charging them now?

Just read this on Celtic Diva:

I found this in my email (and it seems that PALINGATES got one too):

I act as legal counsel to HarperCollins Publishers. I have just learned that you have posted substantial excerpts from our as yet unpublished book, Going Rogue, by Sarah Palin, on your web site. We view your posting of these excerpts as an infringement of our and Governor Palin's exclusive rights under copyright. Accordingly, we demand that you remove them from your web site.
Christopher Goff
Senior Vice President & General Counsel
HarperCollins Publishers
10 East 53rd Street
New York, NY 10022
Voice: 212 207 7127
Fax: 212 207 7552

As you can see, I took the pages off the site. However, the real story here is this:

--The Senior Vice President of Harper Collins,

--ON A SUNDAY,

--Sent emails to two specific blogs, one little blog based in Alaska, another based overseas,

--ignoring the multiple other outlets (many of which were larger or were "Palin-positive") that have pages or "extensive excerpts" from her book on the site.

They didn't do this on their own. Palin picked the ones she wanted them to email. Perhaps not-so-coincidentally, my posts in question leaned towards fact-checking/lie-refuting than some of the others that were more for entertainment.

In other words, this was Palin-flattery!

I was once asked if, God forbid, Palin ever did become President, what would her first act be? I stated that she would gather up the considerable resources available to a U.S. President and use them...to go after her "enemies" in Alaska and the media.

I rest my case.

And in light of all this, the question I have for Mr. Goss and HarperCollins: HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE PALIN'S BITCH?

I read the pages before they were taken down, and am not sure this is being interpreted correctly.

Although a D&C is often used as an abortion procedure, that is not its only purpse. Women often get a D&C following a miscarriage to make sure all the material is gone. So while it's possible SP has had an abortion, her story as described here was not inconsistent with a miscarriage and its aftermath (minus the white-out bit, which is quite odd and certainly suspect).

Why would she tell the story about a doctor's bill that came with the word "abortion" written on it and then whited out?

WHY?

TO get ahead of something someone has threatened to come out with.

There is NO other reason. Did she catalog every other medical bill she got?

And no, you don't get BILLED for a miscarriage. You get billed for a D & C, if you either have an abortion or need to have tissue cleaned out after a miscarriage.

no doctor's office would send a bill with wite-out used. No doctor's office would bill for a "miscarriage".

I know, I've had 3. And I had a D & C after one of them.

My bill most certainly did not say "abortion" anywhere on it.

A miscarriage can be called a spontaneous abortion, but you are NOT billed for that.

Again, we're dealing with a serial, compulsive liar here.

WHY would she tell this story in her fluff book of vendettas and pay-backs and spin?

WHY? There's only ONE reason why. Logic proves it. To assume it was a mistake ignores all of the context and her history of lying. And ignores most vitally WHY she would share this trivial mistake on a doctor's bill.

Comment from the Notes section of Sarah's Facebook page:

SOLDIER FOR THE LORD

She's a soldier for the Lord
Who’s been up and who's been down... Read More
Though while on the battlefield
She has never turned around.

She'll face more than flesh and blood
With the devil's evil hoard.
But they shall not steal her soul
For she swings our Lord's swift sword.

She wears all of God's armor
With helmet, breastplate and shield.
As Satan’s arrows fly by
From his archers of the field.

The devil casts his dark net
Over any he may charm.
He’ll lead them from salvation
With his hands upon their arm.

She battles evil daily
And prays that you’ll join her.
She gives new hope for this world
To be better than we were.

(Anon 1:05 here again)

I can accept the explanation of Anon 1:11. Having been fortunate never have had had a miscarriage or a D&C I am admittedly less familiar with the terminology/experience. I just wanted to make sure that people understood that a) a miscarriage is also known as an abortion (spontaneous abortion) and b) a D&C often follows miscarriage.

I definitely agree that it seems quite odd (read, unbelieveable) that it would read "abortion" under procedure on any bill. And ridiculous to accept a story in which a physician's office would change "abortion" to "miscarriage." A miscarriage isn't a procedure. An indication, perhaps, for a D&C. But not a procedure. And yeah, white-out? Umm. No. When I worked in a hospital, we weren't even allowed to have white-out in our desks.

Regardless, I'm fairly confident that it would simply read "D&C" under procedure, regardless of the indication for said procedure. So there would have been no need to change the bill, if it existed, since it probably just would have said D&C.

Anonymous said...

Did I read after the pages started showing up all over the internet that this infamous book is already going into a second printing?

My first thought was that it is too late to take back what is out there and they may want to re-write and print another version, calling that a second printing. They could come up with excuses for mistakes in the first printing later and take them back?

I know Oprah went ballistic on James Frey when he hoaxed her with a fake biography.

How hard can it be to prove Sarah's lies in a court of law? Which is where I am looking forward to this going.

The first printings are at the distributors. I've heard some are out already. A few people have advance copies. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

Please, Patrick, when you do a related article go on and post what you need in accordance with Fair Use.
