Ben & Jerry’s Sues Porn Company For ‘Ben & Cherry’s’ X-Rated Videos
By John Yong, 07 Sep 2012
Vermont-based Ben & Jerry’s has sued a California-based porn company for allegedly infringing the name of its ice cream flavors with a series of X-rated videos called ‘Ben & Cherry’s’ and for smearing its family-friendly reputation.
According to Reuters, the company Rodax Distributors had changed some of Ben & Jerry’s best-known ice cream flavors into erotic titles for its movies.
For example, “Boston Cream Pie” became “Boston Cream Thighs”, “Chocolate Fudge Brownie” was changed to “Chocolate Fudge Babes” and “Cherry Garcia” became “Hairy Garcia”.
The DVD jackets also copied the packaging of Ben & Jerry’s pint-size ice cream tubs, according to the lawsuit.
Ben & Jerry’s has filed an action with the court to stop the company from producing or selling movies that infringe their trademarks and will be seeking monetary damages.
