Sarah Palin is not happy that excerpts from her new book America By Heart have been leaked online, and she's seeking legal advice—on Twitter. "The publishing world is LEAKING out-of-context excerpts of my book w/out my permission? Isn't that illegal?" she tweeted. Gawker, one of those publishing the excerpts, tweaks her by posting links to a couple of web pages explaining "fair use."

It also notes that Palin's tweet links to the Conservative4Palin blog, which first slams the media for losing its integrity by leaking book excepts, then quotes extensively from the leaks. Palin plans to promote her new book with a tour through several states, including two stops in presidential proving ground Iowa, the Independent notes. (More Sarah Palin stories.)
