Lil Wayne to Sue Over Leaked Sex Tape

I’m almost fascinated by how frequently it seems that celebrities have their nudes or sex tapes leaked to the public. I suppose because they put their lives in the limelight, they forfeit any privacy rights. It’s not right–but it happens.
Lil Wayne, on the other hand, isn’t acting passively about the situation. He’s got his team of lawyers at the hand and he’s getting ready to sue.
The sex tape was leaked to the website, Hollywood Street Kings, under the blog post entitled “TUNECHI TOSS: SKRIPPERS, SALADS & SEX TAPES … OH MY!!!” by Jacky Jasper on October 14. Lil Wayne’s lawyers have sent a cease and desist letter to the website, demanding that the video is removed within the next five days. As of this morning, however, the video is still live. The video features Lil Wayne with two women, reportedly wearing his throughout the video socks. Seriously, Tunechi?
The cease and desist letter stated:

“We hereby demand that you immediately cease the use, exploitation and/or distrubtion of the [Lil Wayne sex] video and that you delier all copies, including electronic copies, of same to us or destroy such copies immediately and that you desist from this or any other infringement of Mr. Carter’s rights in the future.”

In non-lawyer speak? Cut the sh*t or we’ll sue your *ss quick.
While removing the source of the video certainly is a good start, everyone knows that the Internet is forever. You don’t simply “delete” a video for good. There is a myriad of different ways this video could have been pulled by people and innumerable websites it could now be floating around. At this rate, Lil Wayne and his lawyers would have to attack every single website this video was posted on.
