Kim and Kanye

Dude Who Videoed Our Engagement

LAME AND BLIND

031814_kim_kanye_proposal_launch
The guy who Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are suing for secretly videotaping their engagement is not only sneaky ... he's blind -- at least according to the judge.

Chad Hurley -- who co-founded YouTube -- claimed when he videotaped the proposal at AT&T Park in San Fran and later released it on his website MixBit ... he had no idea he had signed a confidentiality agreement.

The case was in court Tuesday -- Hurley was trying to get it dismissed -- but the judge scoffed at him, saying the entire document Hurley signed was 1 page and at the top the words CONFIDENTIALITY could not possibly be missed.

Kanye and Kim could score a huge payday, courtesy of their lawyer, Eric George ... because the judge said Hurley could be liable for fraud, which opens the door to punitive damages ... which theoretically could mean millions of dollars.  Hurley has the money -- Google bought YouTube for $1.6 billion.

The motion to throw the case out was denied.  So full steam ahead!

Ahh! Eric George, the famed Oksana Grigorieva lawyer... He plays by the Hollywood rules. This is probably just free publicity for the lot. Kim, Kanye, MixBit and E!

How dare Chad invade the privacy of Kim and Kanyawn at such and personal and private moment. I mean, these two quiet low key respectable people just wanted too share this special time with only close friends and family, they had no intention of having a film crew there for the scripted reality show , nor did they plan on making any financial gain from it, shame on Chad .

Here's my prediction: before he completes anger management (therapists will RUN from Narcissistic Personality Disorder) he will re-offend. Paps (or the general public) will jump at the chance to instigate him and his disorder will NOT allow him to acquiesce.

Two years probation? He won't go two weeks without a rage incident.

He was so stupid. No one cares about their staged engagement. Now they will probably make more money off him than they would from people watching their crap tv episode (paid for by E channel).

But they signed away the rights to E! and got paid the same amount, regardless. They can not prove damages. One would think the Founder of You Tube would have a lawyer who would point that out.

TMZ.... We need to see the entire confidentiality agreement. If E! Owns the right then E! would benefit from the law suit.
