Website Shut Down Over Copyright Complaints

Its host shut down the website PerezHilton.com on Tuesday after numerous complaints came in alleging that celebrity journalist Perez Hilton had posted copyright photographs on the site. Mr. Hilton says he is entitled to use the photos under the Fair Use Doctrine. He found another ISP by Wednesday of last week and was open for business again. In February Universal Studios sued him for copyright infringement over photos of Jennifer Aniston posted on his site (documents posted on The Smoking Gun website), and other suits are underway.
