Perez sued for
topless Aniston photos

Gay pop culture blogger Perez Hilton has been slapped with another lawsuit, this time for allegedly swiping photo footage of Jennifer Aniston from the film The Break-Up. According to the Smoking Gun Web site, Universal Studios filed a copyright infringement complaint Tuesday against his posting of the photo on his Web site.

The footage, which shows Aniston's breasts, was not used in the final cut of the film; Universal claims it was stolen during production. The complaint does not specify monetary damages.

The studio's nine-page complaint includes a copy of the image, which was censored by lawyers. The lawsuit against Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, seeks an injunction banning further distribution of the picture and requests a court order "directing the U.S. Marshals to seize" the copyrighted material from Hilton.

A $7.5 million complaint against Lavandeira was already raised by celebrity photo agency X17, claiming he posts its images without permission.

In December 2005, Aniston filed a lawsuit over publication of pictures of her sunbathing topless in the backyard of her Los Angeles home. (The Advocate)
