Federal judge to Gawker: Take down the Palin pages (Updated)

Maybe their lawyers will "walk them through it"
The Associated Press reports that a federal judge in New York today ordered Gawker Media to pull leaked pages of Sarah Palin's new book America by Heart from its leftist moonbat blog:
The injunction prohibits Gawker from "continuing to distribute, publish or otherwise transmit pages from the book" pending a hearing on Nov. 30.

HarperCollins Publishers had sued Gawker after it published images on Nov. 17 from Palin's book before its release next week.


Gawker defended its action in a post Thursday titled "Sarah Palin is Mad at Us for Leaking Pages From Her Book" and addressed a message to "Sarah" telling her to read pages about fair use under copyright law. "Or skip the totally boring reading and call one of your lawyers," the post said. "They'll walk you through it."
HarperCollins filed its legal complaint Friday in federal court, arguing that the wacko website not be allowed to engage in what it termed "further copyright infringement." The AP says it couldn't immediately reach Gawker Media LLC to get a comment from the Soros-funded leftists Saturday, but they appeared to have pulled the embargoed pages from their sewer of a blog.

Perhaps the PDS-deranged "progressives" at Gawker should "read some pages about" infringement under copyright law. Or, they can "skip the totally boring reading" and call one of their lawyers who will "walk them through it."

Update: Stacy has a copy of the restraining order up at The Other McCain.

  1. Haha serves Gawker right. I'm enjoying the thought of them eating crow right now along with David Frum. He mocked Sarah on his twitter page saying that this is the reason Sarah should never have any authority over the police force ever because she tweeted "Isn't that illegal?" well Frummy boy looks like the judge agreed with Sarah. Enjoy your crow pie.
