Mass Lawsuits Filed Over Sharing Paris Hilton’s Sex Tape

The company owning the copyrights to the Paris Hilton Sex Tape called “One Night in Paris” recently filed lawsuits against almost 850 suspected BitTorrent users. Despite the fact that the company has already earned millions of dollars from the dubiously obtained movie, it is still demanding compensation for damage caused by mass copyright violation that took place on BitTorrent file-sharing networks.

Actually, mass BitTorrent lawsuits became routine practice in the US, as the copyright owners have embraced a new revenue stream by the dozen. The scheme is simple: after launching a lawsuit, the rights owners are obtaining personal details of individuals suspected of sharing their content online. When they collect the necessary data, a defendant is offered to settle the case for an amount varying from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars to avoid a full trial.

Although the US judicial system is currently overloaded with such cases, one of them stands out from the rest, since it is related to one of BitTorrent’s most downloaded files ever. The copyright for The Paris Hilton Sex Tape, which was originally released 7 years ago, belongs to XPAYS Inc., an organization that launched a new round of lawsuits. The company claims that its video is still being illegally shared among many thousands of BitTorrent users. Therefore, it decided to sue as many as 843 suspected file-sharers at the District Court of Central California.

The Plaintiffs complaints that they have spent too much time, money and effort to produce the “motion picture” to watch their profits declining because of mass copyright violation. Besides, the company points out that such unauthorized distribution poses a real threat to minors, because pirate copies are available for downloading without any age verification.

Meanwhile, in its attempt to stop “copyright trolls” like XPAYS, the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has filed an amicus brief to Illinois judge, asking him to quash subpoenas issued in similar “pay-up-or-else” cases that involve suspected unauthorized file-sharing of porno videos. The letter says that although rights holders have a full right to protect their content, they still can’t employ shoddy and unfair tactics for that.

XPAYS is currently determined to go on with legal action against file-sharers of the Paris Hilton Sex Tape and promises to keep monitoring P2P networks for further infringements.

Crashman_123 avatarExactly how much time and effort is required to use a film made by somebody else? How much production was there on this "Movie"? The answer to both questions ... NONE! The only MONEY involved is what they paid the guy who sold them the video, and it was questionable at the time whether it was LEGAL to show the video commercially, as Paris never signed a release to use the video commercially. (Even PHOTOGRAPHERS must get their models to sign releases to allow the photographer to sell their images commercially.)

And why did it take them SEVEN YEARS to file the suits ... The statute of limitations has run out for Paris to sue THEM!

msmsm avatarWe should be able to take legal action against these pricks for releasing it in the first place.
Isn't Paris a place, maybe they should rename Paris to --OPEN FOR BUSINESS 24/7.
