It’s open season once again on the Internet for Lee-gazing.
Pamela Anderson Lee and Tommy Lee agreed Monday to allow a World Wide Web-based adult video distributor sole license to distribute the notorious homevideo graphically portraying the married couple’s sex life.
Seattle-based Internet Entertainment Group, which won the license, said the couple had dropped their attempt to bar “(IEG) from distributing over the World Wide Web a notorious video that shows them in intimate sexual relations.”
The couple had sued IEG for invasion of privacy, but that suit — like the others revolving around the steamy home movie — was lost primarily because the judges and/or arbitrators in the cases found either the video in question or stills taken from it to be “newsworthy.” (In the case of the IEG suit, the matter was remanded to a private arbitrator by mutual consent of both parties.)
IEG said Monday that the two contesting parties agreed to a settlement before the arbitration process began. A spokesperson for the Lees said she couldn’t comment on any financial details of the settlement, but added that the couple was still “sick about the whole matter of arbitration.”
