In what may be the first hit against bloggerazzi star Perez Hilton's empire, his main webhost has dropped Perezhilton.com. After numerous warnings against Hilton's (aka Mario Lavandeira) use of copyrighted celebrity images, the Oz-based Crucial Paradigm took the site off line; it was dark for a number of hours before it returned to the Internet with a different host. Hilton is currently named in four lawsuits involving eight photo agencies for his alleged theft of photographs that appear on his site, one that's been a popular gossip destination for some 2½ years. Hilton frequently adds his own captions to the shots.

I think it should be shut down just because he's a hypocritical assh*le. He criticizes women for needing nose jobs or having the absolute most miniscule amount of cellulite, and he's an ugly geeky fat f*ck himself.

Who is this person? I've never heard of him. When I first read the question I thought someone spelled Paris Hilton wrong.

There's that, but I also dislike the way he tries to drag everyone and their mom out of the closet if he suspects that they're gay. I find that sleazy and insensitive.

If he's guilty of copyright infringement, then yes his site should be shut down.
Otherwise, let him talk sh*t about people all he wants.

I absolutely hate celebrity paparazzi-wannabe's like himself.

And I hate the fact that just because he's in that "position" and has that type of career that he's allowed to dish out insults all he wants with little to no backlash. I'm sick of celebrity gossip whores and uppity fashionista red carpet snots getting away with saying hideously offensive things that even I cringe to hear, and I hate most celebrities. They're lucky that they're so pathetic that they couldn't even become famous A-listers, because let me tell you, there's a lot of things "wrong with them", by Hollywood standards.

I hope he gets sued.

No, I kinda like his website, he posts hilarious stuff on his site about celebs

He's so funny. It's a guilty pleasure.

I love Perez Hilton...But if he's breaking the law then yes, I suppose they should shut him down until he shapes up. I would figure he makes enough money to buy his own pics from the photogs anyway.

I guess he should've thought longer before posting other's photos.

I think copyright of the picture, should be long to the object of the picture if it is a person. Unless they waive it.
