Gawker and HarperCollins have settled their dispute regarding leaked pages of Sarah Palin’s book, America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag, which was released on Tuesday. Reuters reports both parties reached a settlement late Tuesday, a few days after a judge in Manhattan had ordered the website to take down excerpts from Palin’s book. “In settling the case, Gawker has agreed to keep the posted material off its website and not to post the material again in the future,” Erin Crum, HarperCollins spokeswoman, said in a statement. Gawker editor Remy Stern saw a silver lining in the dispute for Palin: “[It] generated a good deal of press for Ms. Palin’s book in advance of its publication … Now that the book is out and destined to appear on the best-seller list, we’re pleased that HarperCollins proposed settline this case as is, thus avoiding lengthy litigation for both sides.”
