Vanessa Hudgens

Sues Over Nude Pics

12/24/2009 2:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Vanessa Hudgens is determined to teach a website an elementary lesson -- nude self-portraits are meant for self, not others.

Vanessa is suing the owners of www.moejackson.com, claiming the website posted and refused to take down nude, "self-portrait photographs" taken in a private home. The photos were taken on a cell phone. The suit doesn't mention the photos show Vanessa naked, but the pics on the site tell the story.

As for how the photos got out, the lawsuit explains, "The photos were obtained by unknown methods and posted on the internet by an unknown person without Hudgens' knowledge or consent."

Interestingly, Vanessa registered the nude photos with the U.S. Copyright Office.

Vanessa's lawyers cried copyright violation but Butter Media, the company that owns the website, was unmoved.

So Vanessa has filed a federal lawsuit and is asking the judge for an injunction, ordering the site to take the photos down. She also wants damages.

I just bought a new car stereo... When you shout out "Soul", it plays soul music. When you shout out "Rock", it plays rock music. Some kids ran in front of my car, and I shouted "f`n kids!", and it played Michael Jackson.

This ain't Moe Jackson's fault. Vanessa Hudgens is the one who took nude photos of herself and then emailed the photos to all her friends. Moe Jackson did nothing wrong.

Vanessa did not email the photos to anyone - either your too stupid to get your facts right or you are just a liar

I thought the owner of this sleazy TMZ site was a lawyer. If the photos were released without her consent once already wouldn't copyrighting them to prevent them from being posted without permission again make sense.
