Ben & Jerry’s Sues Porn Company and Wins Round 1

Cabllero Video to temporarily stop selling its 'Ben & Cherry's' DVDs

   

Caballero Video has used the ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s as inspiration for its pornographic Ben & Cherry’s DVD series. The earth-conscious ice cream chain sued the porn company and has won the first round.

On Thursday, a Manhattan court ordered the porn company to stop selling the items and to remove those products from the Internet, Reuters reported.

In addition to the names of the video series, which include titles like Boston Cream Thighs, Chocolate Fudge Babes and Peanut Butter D-Cups, the complaint says the DVDs’ packaging is too similar to Ben & Jerry’s packaging.

The order is a temporary blocking; the next court date regarding the case has been set for Sept. 12.
