Star blogger Perez Hilton is sure keeping his lawyers busy. Just last week, he was sued for $25 million by a reader whose email address he published, and this week he's going on the offensive. The Los Angeles Times reports that Perez has sued the team behind PerezRevenge.com for cyber-squatting:
Celebrity celebrity-blogger Mario Lavandeira, better known as Perez Hilton, is quite possibly better at dishing it out than taking it.
The Los Angeles-based cultural authority, whose moniker could conceivably have something to do with the name of infrequently-clothed blond person Paris Hilton, is going to court to protect said moniker.
Lavandeira sued Infuse LLC, Margie E. Rogers and Elizabeth Silver-Fagan in L.A. federal court on Monday, accusing them of being the respective owner, editor and publisher of Perezrevenge.com. You can download a PDF of the lawsuit here.
Best known for annotating pictures of famous people and critiquing them, Lavandeira is demonstrably unhappy with the smaller site's purported tendency to post artwork from and critique PerezHilton.com.
