From New Magazine in the UK:

Paris Hilton’s infamous sex tape is at the centre of a new lawsuit as porn bosses battle 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 boyfriend 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.

So the lawsuits are not about privacy. It’s about copyright and profits. Figures.
