Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is suing 10 Web site operators who posted the rocker's homemade sex tape after it was stolen from his computer -- possibly by the same hackers who got into reality-television star Paris Hilton's cell phone.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles federal court last week, seeks more than $70 million in damages and any profits the site operators reaped in recent weeks, when the 3-minute clip of Durst and a former girlfriend began appearing on the Internet.

n the complaint, Durst contends the 2003 video was never meant for public viewing. It was stored in Durst's home computer, but hackers managed to break in remotely and make a copy, according to the lawsuit.

In December, Durst's manager was contacted by the owner of an adult video firm who asked whether the singer would be interested in making the video available commercially. Durst's attorneys then sent letters ordering the defendants to stop.

The lawsuit claims the site operators invaded Durst's privacy and misappropriated his name and likeness. Durst, who secured the copyrights to the video before filing the lawsuit, also claims the Web sites are guilty of violating U.S. copyright laws.

Since the lawsuit was filed, many of the Web sites have said they would pull the clip. "Most of them have purported to comply," Ed McPherson, Durst's attorney, said.

McPherson said federal investigators were looking at whether the hacking incident involving Durst's computer was related to one involving Hilton. Recently, the contents of her mobile phone, including celebrity phone numbers and e-mail addresses, were posted on the Internet.

The Durst sex tape was still available for download yesterday (March 8) on at least one of the Web sites, which was listed in the lawsuit as being operated by Peerl Network Inc. of San

Jose, Calif.

WTF, he's such a hypocrite. And you can tell his career must be going down hill. Just 2 years ago he was bragging about his sex life, and intimate details with Britney Spears... Now all of a sudden he's worried his sex tape got out? LOSER :retard:

I'd sue too... But not the 'hacker'.
It was not a very good 'movie'. Some aspects are, um, lacking. :tape:
...and some are just not hot.
