Paris Sues Over Sex Stuff, Medical Records

1/30/2007 3:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton has filed a Federal lawsuit, claiming the website Parisexposed.com is "the single most egregious and reprehensible invasions of privacy ever committed against an individual."

ParisExposed.com includes sex photos and videos, highly-sensitive medical records, diary entries and audiotapes of her conversations. The cache was stored at a warehouse and was purchased for $2,775 at a foreclosure auction after the storage bill went unpaid. The contents were then re-sold to Bardia Persa for a cool $10 mil. Persa then allegedly created Parisexposed.com., a subscription site which is burning up the Internet.


Just hours after filing the lawsuit yesterday, Paris and Nicole Richie were spotted at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. While Paris may have looked relatively unfazed for the cameras, her rep tells TMZ that she's "deeply hurt" by having her private escapades laid bare once again.

The suit, which asks for compensatory and punitive damages, claims the use of Paris' most personal belongings for commercial purposes is a violation of Federal Copyright laws as well as a violation of Paris' right to privacy. The suit also seeks a restraining order and an injunction against the website.

#28, if you read my post properly, you'll notice that I didn't say acquiring the items was wrong. Publishing them online, and profiting from the publication, IS a violation of copyright.

.:coquin:.    

i saw the stuff from parisexposed (for free at other blogs) and it said she had a miscarriage march of 03. i googled paris hilton march 2003 to see who she was with then (the miscarriage) and it said that's when she got in a fight with shannen doherty over rick saloman. it said: Paris and Rick have been holed up at the Beverly Hills Hotel for 10 days partying hard and he hasn't gone home to see his two children. that's why she and shannen got into it. maybe she was there recovering from her miscarriage? hmmm....

Anonymous you couldn't be more wrong.

Once you are in breech of contractal obligations to the facility owner, your materials and goods are forfit and therefore you forfit your ownership,copyrights or any other property rights to the materials in question.

It is akin to leaving these items on the sidewalk for the garbageman to take away. Once it is out there it is open for grabs.

It's sad, even though she loves publicity, there is a limit to what people should do to make money. There was a time when the tabloids would go through celebritie's own garbage cans to find stuff to use. But this thing with Paris is really pushing the limits of what people should get away with. This woman who has the website should be shut down until the courts decide what is right, she is the garbage monger. Shame on her. GO PARIS hope you win.

Anyone who says they are a fan of Paris Hilton should be embarrassed!! What are you a fan of? Her herpes covered snatch? This bitch is pictured flashing her tits and snorting coke off some fat hairy dude and you are fan of that? Some of this stuff was when she was a teenager but the Joe Francis stuff is from only 2 years ago people! Paris is 26 years old, not a teenager. How can you call yourselves fans when Paris BLATANLY lies to you and says sh*t like "I don't drink alcohol" and "I have only had sex with two guys." What the hell is wrong with you people who stick up for this skanky bitch??? She photographs herself on a toilet, doing blow, smoking tampons and then is dumb enough to put these items into storage??? ALSO, there is a record of a bill from a clinic detailing her miscarriage. Why was Paris at a clinic and not a hospital? $50 says it was an abortion and not a so-called "miscarriage." Paris Hilton is the world's biggest whore. Anyone who considers themselves a fan is delusional and needs therapy. This tw*t deserves to be exposed for the tramp that she truly is! Paris Hilton is a filty rotten, cum guzzling, two dollar coke whore and the whole world knows it.

Let's see? Paris has 2 sex tapes out already, pictures on the internet of her smoking pot, Blackberry hacked, tape of her making fun of 2 black men, TMZ told her about 2 months ago what people really think of her, she is always made fun of, hit with a DUI charge, etc... I would have burned every picture, tape, recording, diary, etc. after all the above were made public. Not this stupid bitch, she forgets her storage building monthly fee with private items and it is sold. When did the items become private? Before or after they were sold? If they were so damn private, why not keep them in her private home? I think it is funny as hell!!! You know she would be laughing her ass off if this happened to Nicole when they were fighting or Lindsey Lohan- Firecrotch... No wonder she is not having sex for a year, we have tapes to see where she has already screwed all of Hollywood, Europe and the USA

Paris had an abortion, herpes, does drugs, shows her vagina and flat chest to everyone who will look and lets some camera man rub between her legs, and makes fun of poor people. All caught on tape. Do folks still think she is a sweet shy girl your daughters should look up to? LOL!

JT, you're wrong.

Copyright gives an author the exclusive right to "print, reprint, publish, or vend" these works. Today, copyright protects a wide range of published and unpublished "original works of authorship" that are "fixed in a tangible medium of expression." The quotes come from www.copyright.gov

Copyright does not hinge on physical possession of the item. If you were to dig through George Lucas' garbage and find the original script for Star Wars, you could (rightly) argue ownership of that item. You could NOT, however, argue copyright. Having physical ownership of a single item does not give you the right to reproduce it and sell copies.

Yes, the guy who bought the items has ownership of the physical item. I'm not arguing your point there. But the only person with the right to "print, reprint, publish, or vend" copies of the items remains the creator of the items.

Your argument is basically like saying that since I own a book, I'm allowed to photocopy it and sell the copies. No. I am allowed to sell my one copy of a book to a used bookstore, but that is the extent to which my profit-making can legally go.

Any further argument? (This is much more fun than doing my work).

She is finally exposed for the lying moron she really is. I bet she loves all this attention because why the hell would she make these tapes and abandon them in storgae if she didn't want people to see them? She is a shameless bimbo who will do anything to be the center of the universe. Sad thing is she will probably make even more $$$ off this to snort up her big beak!

Will Paris be the next person going to rehab to try to restore the image she wants of herself? Anyone who takes a picture of themselves on a dirty toilet with piss on the floor is F***ed up!

Paris is not a teenager in all of these pictures and videos. She can't use that as an excuse. She is a spoiled rotten cocaine whore who thinks she's the king tut of everyone. Glad she got exposed for the idiot she really is.

With all her money why couldn't she pay the 200 dollar fee? Did she honestly think she could trust the slime that invented girls gone wild to help her out? She really is the brainless fool everyone says she is. All that pot and cocaine has turned her feeble mind into mush.
