Lohan to Sue Jewelry Store Over Surveillance Tape

3/8/2011 2:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is preparing to sue Kamofie & Company jewelry store -- claiming they had no right  to cash in  from the sale of the infamous surveillance tape ... because Lindsay never gave them the right to use her image for profit ... TMZ has learned.

Lindsay Lohan Surveillance Tape

Sources connected to the surveillance video tell TMZ ... Kamofie sold the rights to distribute the tape to the Associated Press for at least $40k. The AP has since struck a deal with "Entertainment Tonight" in which the show got exclusive rights to air the tape for one week.

We're told Lohan met with her lawyers today ... no word on when she plans to file the lawsuit.

UPDATE: A rep for Kamofie tells us, "We regret to hear there is trepidation by Miss Lohan in connection with the video. "

The statement continues, "We hope that everyone understands that this is beyond our control, the flood of the requests to see this video were simply too overwhelming.  It was truly necessary to put it out."

Geez, Louise! Will she EVER just ONCE take responsibility for something she does?! That's what infuriates me about her--She constantly tries to turn around the blame every time she does something wrong! Which is pretty much constantly.

She is so full of herself, she thinks everyone will believe even the most unbelievable of lies because she's so much better than the rest of us. Guess what? She's not, and the judge doesn't think so either. Has she ever said the word, "Sorry" EVER in her life? If she had just said sorry and accepted her consequences by doing some jail time years ago, she'd be done with it, off probation, and she could have spent all these years doing something productive instead of constantly in and out of the courts and jail. It's called being SMART.

My lord.

You hit the nail right on the head!! What store from now on will want Lindsay's "business"?? LoL...She already got banned from a swanky party in West Hollywood recently...Probably due to the fact that people were afraid her sticky fingers would lift their property...LOL!!

Hey Skank! Maybe you shouldn't steal and then they wouldn't have a tape to sale! You should be humiliated about everyone seeing you be the thief you are!

She gave consent: it's implied when you walk into a store with surveillance. I will reiterate what I said yesterday: she needs to read our laws because she clearly doesn't understand them.

Would they please lock this bitch up already. If she get's away with this, I'll have lost all faith (what little I have left anyway) in the justice system.

This business should sue Lindsay. Most likely, that's what they will do.

They should sue her for their lawyer's fees if nothing else.

BTW, how many lawsuits does Lindsay have going now?
Isn't she also being sued by the people whose car she commandeered?

Let's hope the store sues her right back for stealing their necklace, loss of business, bad publicity and emotional distress.

Didn't Harvey say that doesn't apply to News media? That news outlets don't need your permission to use your image? If TMZ is considered news media so is ET.
