It's been seven years since the release of "One Night In Paris". The sex tape of socialite, Paris Hilton, and then-boyfriend, Rick Salomon. 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 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. The company that owns the copyright to Paris Hilton's XXX debut - "One Night in Paris" - has filed the suit against 843 "John Does" for cyber-stealing the infamous flick - referred to as a "motion picture" in the lawsuit.

The defendants have been been illegally distributing the "motion picture" from 2010 up until now. Proving its success, in the year it was released, Rick Salomon reported earning $10 million. Making it the most lucrative night vision sex tape in history.

Also in 2005, Red Light Video, as the then exclusive owner and distributor of the 1 Night in Paris DVD, filed suit against Woodland Hills One Hour Photo, alleging the illegal counterfeit manufacture, sale and distribution of the video.

Even though Paris filed a lawsuit to prevent the release. She did sign off on One Night, but her share of proceeds derived from the sale and rental of the movie over the years has never been publicly disclosed.

Rick Salomon was previously married to Pamela Anderson, who has a sex tape of her own with Tommy Lee.

    i don't see anything so special about Paris at all, she is no actor nor supermodel but one who loves getting attentions from publicity and media, and one who loves to get hi and enjoys her sex and eventually she gets even more popular from all these.....it is her way of getting attention.

    i hav this video too, and the extra's are better than the main feature, she is absolutely pathetic, all she's worried about is getting her head in the camera. i agree wit Ln "trying to stop internet porn is like trying to kill a shark with a hard boiled egg"
