    why is the other book "crap" ? Have you read it ? Is there anything that is not true in it ? Are you saying that the other book's writers/publishers do not a have right to write ? Last that I checked this was a free country unless Nixon is back in office!!

    Why does a a book that very likley tells the truth about a quiter constitute an exemplification of a threat ?

    I didn't know public figures really needed to sign releases. I thought it was implied at such events and with such people. I can see her suing to remove the image from the work but then what? They can find an image by somebody who does have a release form, change the hue on her jacket and presto.

    Palin is a public figure who gets photographed all the time. A photojournalist would own the copywrite.

    The similarity to the cover of Palin's book cover is the only issue. Palin's publisher could argue that a customer might pick up the dark cloud nightmare book by mistake. But even that's a stretch since many book covers looks similar and it is up to the customer to actually read the title of the book he/she plans to purchase.

    In which case, the attorney for Palin's publisher could argue that people likely to purchase Palin's book are not too bright and a can't read above a 4th grade level.

    If the essays are of the humorous variety, which is very likely because well... Palin is just so funny...in a scary way, then the book would be considered a parody or satire of Palin's book. Case closed, end of story.

    Good luck with your BIG legal action...
    You am funny !!! Thank you for the many much ha ha 's !!!

    I don't know. I mean if you buy a replica of the Mona Lisa because it looks similar to the real image and argue that you thought you were buying the real thing at $64 at a Target no judge will take you seriously. It's up to the customer to check the merchandise and if he/she doesn't think he's got the right product they can always return it.

    And although we liberals love to laugh at her wacky antics, even I'll admit that after we saw Bush the Lesser elected twice, we don't put it past the wingnuts to try and vote in Miss Snowjob McSquareglasses.
    ha ha ha "Miss Snowjob McSquareglasses" !!! That be much funny Joe !! Me like knicknames many much !!
