Ben & Jerry’s Sues Adult Film Company for Making ‘Ben & Cherry’s’ Films
Now, the industry has gotten in some trouble over its “Ben and Cherry's” film series—Ben & Jerry's, the company, is suing the makers of the porn flicks, Rodax Distributors and Caballero Video.
From the Huffington Post:
The company changed some of Ben & Jerry's best-known ice cream flavors into titles for its movies, according to a complaint filed by Ben & Jerry's, a subsidiary of Unilever NV, on Wednesday in Manhattan federal court.
The lawsuit alleges that the porn titles were too similar to the names of Ben & Jerry's flavors: “Boston Cream Pie” became “Boston Cream Thighs,” “Chocolate Fudge Brownie” was changed to “Chocolate Fudge Babes,” and “Peanut Butter Cup” became “Peanut Butter D-Cups.”
The lawsuit also states that the sale of the hardcore DVDs tarnishes the name of the company, potentially hurting sales. Like no company has ever used sex to advertise before.
