Why don't celebrities sue paparazzi for harassment?

The celebrities secretly want or need the attention. That's how they remain famous.
The paparazzi are actually not breaking any laws.
It's too much trouble to sue the paparazzi.
I think the reason is...
You!

Occasionally, you will see a celebrity like Kanye West lose his cool and lash back at paparazzi, but for the most part, celebrities seem to accept their fate. Why don't celebrities take action against annoying paparazzi? Aren't they basically stalkers? If celebs can't nail paparazzi under that, they should at least be able to sue for harassment? Also, even though it is legal to take someone's picture, it has to be illegal to publish them without the celebrity's consent, right? Isn't that why some filmmakers blur out people in the background who haven't signed a waiver? Yet, we see tabloids publish plenty of unflattering photos that celebrities can't seem to suppress.

    Because a lot of them need the reinforcement. If their name isn't on TMZ or Perez Hilton or in some magazine some of them feel like their career is slipping.

    If you do it with one another one is waiting at the corner.

    honestly i dont think celbs care too much. i mean sure it gets annoying but rarely do they cause harm to them so they just don't mind i guess.

    Yeah, if that wasn't an option, that's what I was going to say. It's sad, really sad cause they crave that attention. Most of them, anyway, but not all. Some of them hate the cameras.

    Paparazzi multiply. If a celebrity takes one down then another one will take its place.

    And there's the saying that there's no such thing as bad publicity.

    Without the Pappratzzi crew there are no on the go photos and no excitement. You gotta excite and stimulate, and the Papparrazzi get paid and you get paid. It is a very sick logve affair.

    I think there are a couple of reasons--

    1) There really is no such thing as bad press for a lot of celebrities; anything that keeps their names in the paper is good.

    2) There IS such a thing as freedom of the press-- as long as no laws are broken, the freedom of the press is absolute.
