Verne Troyer Sues TMZ

6/27/2008 10:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Verne TroyerVerne Troyer has filed a $20 million lawsuit, claiming TMZ violated his rights by publishing and airing portions of his sex tape.

In the suit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in downtown L.A., Troyer claims TMZ violated his privacy rights and infringed on his copyright and trademark by running portions of the tape on TMZ TV and TMZ.com. He also alleges TMZ violated his right of publicity and misappropriated his name and likeness.

Troyer says the tape was stolen and ended up in the hands of Kevin Blatt, the guy who distributed "One Night in Paris." Blatt is also named as a defendant.

In addition to damages, Troyer wants an injunction prohibiting further dissemination of the video.

Calls to TMZ were not returned.

I can see where he would be mad, i can see where he would feel violated. but has he not seen what happends when celebs make sex tapes and don't lock them up in like a security box? i know he should not have to do this but when one's life is in a fish bowl and these days things like that get stolen. he should try to cash in on the tapes rather than waste money on a law suit that he won't win.

Well thi is just a tad sad. If anyone will let someone else tape an intimate moment, well then, you were asking for it. Vern is not a typical celeb, he has many issues and he can't deal. VERN? I am sorry if your a little person, but you are not doing justice to little people.

i agree with # 46 and 47

just dont make tapes. i cant see why they do anyways . i would never do it but these days people can hide cameras
we get our pic taken without knowing it on cells phones and im really tired of all this . i think there should be a law about the cell phones . we have no privacy in this life anymore and it sucks .

MAKE IT A LAW ABOUT PEOPLE TAKING PICS ON CELL PHONES . ITS JUST NOT RIGHT

Vernon is lucky anyone watched anything with him in it. He's just using this to get publicity and to get his pay on!
