Bosses at XPays Inc., who obtained the copyright, is targeting 843 users who are alleged to have illegally obtained '1 Night in Paris'.
Paris Hilton's infamous sex tape is at the center of a new lawsuit as porn bosses battle to keep the film away from illegal downloaders. The socialite hit headlines back in 2004 when a porn video called "1 Night in Paris" surfaced on the internet.
The film, which features Hilton with her former boyfriend Rick Salomon, became a best-seller and now executives at the company which owns the copyright to the tape are suing online users who have been downloading the footage without paying.
Bosses at XPays Inc., who obtained the copyright from Salomon's brother Jim, have filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, targeting 843 users who are alleged to have illegally obtained the film between 2010 and 2011, according to TMZ.com.
