Atlanta’s Erin Andrews gets rights to peephole videos

erin-andrews-02The Smoking Gun (remember them?) has gotten documentation showing Atlanta ESPN reporter Erin Andrews now has legal ownership of the naked peephole videos of her taken by Michael Barrett.

Barrett is going to prison next week for a felony stalking conviction. He secretly shot the videos in three hotels while she was on the road for her job.

According to the site:

Barrett, sentenced last month to 30 months in federal prison, recently signed over his rights to the videos to Andrews, according to Daniel Alberstone, one of the sportscaster’s lawyers. With ownership of the videos legally transferred from the felon, Andrews could pursue federal copyright lawsuits against anyone distributing or broadcasting the videos.

In an interview I did with her a month ago, she expressed frustration that the Internet makes it virtually impossible to snuff out the videos completely.

Andrews, an Atlanta resident since 2002, has been in Los Angeles on “Dancing With the Stars.” With five contestants out, she remains a contender to win, though she has gotten mostly middling to good grades but has never been able to out-dance leader Nicole Scherzinger.

I don’t owe her anything, because they removed before I got a chance to see it.

Michael, looks like you transposed “bush” and “someday” in your post. Common mistake.

This stupid video is old news. Having “ownership” of this video won’t change anything.

Well, I’m glad after going on Oprah (twice!), the Today Show, Dancing with the Stars and so forth, she can “finally put this behind” her and “move on.” KJ, I’ve watched it. It’s really more of a landing strip.

Get a brain Dawn. She wouldn’t have paid lawyers to do this if it “won’t change anything” . Anyone hosting this video (we know your i.p. address, you idiot), will be tracked down and sued. Go ahead, Dawn, download it.

I don’t have it, and rather not watch it. My only point is the cats out of the bag, most anybody that wants to view it has already. As I said before, this video is old news, most people have moved on.

If you’re referring to the “problem” of horny men wanting to look at nekkid women…. well, good luck eradicating that, pal.

Erin needs a good six months at my house, with some loving healing bikini-car-wash therapy, strictly for her own well-being, mind you…

You guys who want to see and have seen it disgust me. I mean its sad if you can only see a woman nude, because she was exposed on the internet.
