Kim And Kanye Sue Over Leaked Proposal Footage
Couple files legal proceedings against YouTube cofounder Chad Hurley…
Hurley posted a two and a half minute clip of Kanye’s proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park on his website MixBit, which quickly went viral the following day.
According to E! News, the couple filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday (October 31) claiming Hurley "tagged along with someone who was invited" to the event but was allowed to stay after signing a confidentiality agreement prohibiting him from posting videos or images from the night.
The lawsuit states that: "Exclusive rights, such as those sold by plaintiffs to publication of video of the event, are particularly valuable. If people violate these rights...they are of substantially diminished value."

The Mercy rapper and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had allowed E!’s cameras to film Kanye getting down on one knee, to possibly include the moment in the show or use as exclusive content on their channel and website.
The complaint adds that: "Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else."
Kimye are seeking unspecified damages for alleged breach of contract, fraud and unjust enrichment.
