XPays Sues 843 Over ‘Paris Hilton Sex Tape’

LOS ANGELES — XPays has filed a copyright infringement complaint against 843 unnamed defendants identified as John Does for allegedly copying and distributing unauthorized copies of the “Paris Hilton Sex Tape.”

The suit, filed at U.S. District Court in Los Angeles last week by Michael Fattorosi of Fattorosi and Associates, claims the infringements allow the BitTorrent users and others to unlawfully obtain and distribute copies of the “Paris Hilton Sex Tape,” for which the plaintiff “spent a substantial amount of time, money and effort to produce, market and distribute.”

The suit also said the John Does are not only involved in rampant infringement, but are causing other problems too.

“Minors are able to download adult entertainment content without being subject to the age verification process,” the suit said. “Users are able to distribute adult entertainment content without complying with record-keeping requirements.”

XPays, which officially obtained the rights in 2004 to sell, market and otherwise exploit the video on the Internet, is seeking injunctive relief, prohibiting each defendant from further infringing on its copyright and damages.

The suit is also asking the defendants to destroy all copies of the video that were transferred or downloaded.

Red Light District has the exclusive for DVD distribution.
