Hilton sex tape owners sue California photo shop employee, claiming he allegedly illegally counterfeited, manufactured, sold and distributed the video
The owners of Paris Hilton's sex tape have taken a legal action against piracy. World Wide Red Light District boss, David Joseph, filed a suit against California photo shop employee, Mordechi Kattan, in Los Angeles' Federal District Court on April 4, 2005, claiming he allegedly illegally counterfeited, manufactured, sold and distributed the video.
With those allegations, Joseph is seeking a permanent injunction and more than $3 million in damages. Moreover, the company has also asked Hilton's fans to come forward with other possible counterfeiters, and has posted a reward for information leading to the prosecution of other pirates on its website. It is not mentioned if Hilton herself will have any involvement in the proceedings.
