Today Shrider signed a statement declaring that the sex tape featuring her and "Austin Powers" mini star Verne Troyer was filmed with her videocamera and that she allowed TMZ to use the footage .
Gringas wrote that courts generally try to protect celebrities from “any conduct that’s really offensive,” but are also aware that the release of some tapes actually benefits the celebrity.
“However, when a private tape is truly stolen from the owner, most times courts will do all they can to protect the rights of the celebrity to control their name or image,” Gringas wrote.

Both Lerner and Gringas said they doubted injunctions against TMZ would remain, since the site may argue it was simply reporting the news.
