Kim and Kanye mean business when it comes to protecting the footage of their San Francisco engagement. The couple sued Chad Hurley (a co-founder of YouTube) for posting short clips from the momentous occasion onto his new venture, MixBit. Hurley claims he didn't know he signed a confidentiality agreement. But early last week, a California district judge ruled that Hurley couldn't have missed the memo. Expect the trial to begin in November unless the parties settle outside of court (PS, Kimye deny that Hurley ever offered to donate to charity as retribution). It just goes to show that there are some Kardashian life events that are meant to be private—that is, until they're cut and prepped for reality TV a few months down the line.
