London, Jan 25 (ANI): Paris Hilton’s infamous sex tape is back in news as porn bosses are battling to keep the film away from illegal downloaders.
The socialite hit headlines back in 2004 when a porn video called 1 Night in Paris surfaced on the Internet.
The film, which features Hilton with her former beau Rick Salomon, became a best-seller and now executives at the company which owns the copyright to the tape are suing online users who have been downloading the footage without paying.
According to TMZ.com, bosses at XPays Inc., who obtained the copyright from Salomon’s brother Jim, have filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, targeting 843 users who are alleged to have illegally obtained the film between 2010 and 2011, reports the Daily Express. (ANI)
