Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in a legal battle with Chad Hurley, the founder of YouTube. Chad allegedly put their engagement video online before it aired on TV, so Kim and Kanye decided to sue.
According to Radar Online, Chad was willing to pay. However, he wanted to donate the money to charity. Kim and Kanye refused his offer. They want the money for themselves.
Kanye didn’t want the engagement footage shown before it aired on the show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Because Chad aired sections of it beforehand, Kanye is certain that it cost them money.
Chad tried to have the case dismissed by filing a motion. His reasoning was under California’s anti-SLAPP statute. Kim and Kanye won that argument.
Judge Ruth Kwan ruled on March 21 that the case would be heard in court on November 17. Of course, the judge suggested that perhaps Kim, Kanye, and Chad could reach an agreement before that time.
Apparently, the rights to their exclusive engagement party went to the highest bidder. Kim said to the court, “The rights to broadcast the event were sold on an exclusive basis. Such rights (including future rights) are (and will be) of diminished value if others preempt the official, contractually authorized broadcast or other publication rights that Kanye West or I own with their own, earlier unauthorized publication or broadcast.”
How do you think this will turn out? Will they settle out of court or are they only interested in the money?
