Apparently, the legal steps that Verne Troyer have taken to fight the public release of his sex tape with former girlfriend, model Ranae Shrider, are useless as the clip is now unleashed. E! News reported that the sex tape has been sold and can be purchased through a website called SexWithMiniMe.com.
The site, which is decorated in a 1960s "Spy Who Shagged Me"-inspired theme, features a headline on its very top part that read "Sex with Mini, Let's Shag." Below the statement there's a warning and also pictures of Verne and Shrider, side by side, with their heads being cut off.
Verne and Shrider's sex tape first surfaced on the net in June 2008. TMZ website was the first to report on the raunchy tape's existence and at the same time aired it on its site. The footage showed the former lovers kissing at their apartment and was later claimed as a cut-off version. That, however, didn't stop other parties to start bidding on the right to distribute the footage.
Verne then quickly filed a lawsuit against TMZ for posting the tape without his consent. Alleging the website to have violated his rights to privacy and publicity, infringed upon his copyright and trademark and misappropriated his name and likeness, he thus sought damages and as well asked an injunction prohibiting the wide spread of the video. Being granted temporary shut down of his sex tape, Verne settled the legal battle in July, but currently is still dealing with the 20 million dollar lawsuit he brought against Shrider for leaking the tape.
