I normally don’t post on our blog, but am taking one for the team with the re-release of the Robert Hoffman book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World ~ The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen. For those who have not followed the Gosselin saga and are saying “Kate who?.” Robert Hoffman originally released a version of this book a couple years ago and it was on sale at amazon for a whopping 2 days before amazon pulled it due to potential copyright issues.
If you listen to Kate’s sheeple, they want you to believe that Kate got the book pulled, but in reality it was actually TLC and possibly some other businesses that filed claims with amazon because there were full contracts published in the book and they considered that proprietary information. Amazon has a very simple policy. It is not their job to figure out who owns the copyright, that is the work of lawyers and judges, so if there is a copyright claim filed (and I’m sure it has to look reasonable), they will pull the book. They make no determination on whether this IS a violation, they just pull the book. So while Kate’s flock likes to make it sound like she personally got the book pulled because it was full of lies, there is no evidence that is the case. In fact, there is evidence that she tried to keep the book from publication and could not do so. I’m not going to cover that, google will give you more background than you could ever want about the situation, though, if you are interested.
Mr. Hoffman was originally assigned to follow the Gosselin saga by US Weekly when the situation started melting down in 2009 and continued to follow Kate based on what he saw during his time as a reporter for the magazine.
