Falcon Foto, CelebrityCash Settle Over Sizemore Sex Tapes

Rhett Pardon

LOS ANGELES — Falcon Foto has settled copyright infringement claims against the operators of CelebrityCash, which were alleged to have distributed five Tom Sizemore sex tapes on the Internet.

The settlement apparently was reached several months ago, but terms of the agreement won't be finalized until May 2013, according to court documents.

Falcon sued at U.S. District Court in Los Angeles last year, claiming that Internet Commerce Group, which operates CelebrityCash, as well as XXXCash, MaleStars, MaleCelebs, MaleCelebrities, ICelebonline, XAhead and CelebrityCashRocks, infringed on the Sizemore videos, as well as four photos.

 “Defendant ICG used, and continues to use, Sizemore’s name, likeness, image and persona to promote and market the defendant’s domains and the defendant’s affiliate marketing program and to generate traffic, customers and revenue via the affiliate marketing program,” the suit said.
