Porn producer settles lawsuit with Ben & Jerry’s

US-FOOD-ICE CREAM

REUTERS – A California pornography studio has reached an agreement with Ben & Jerry’s not release DVD’s or any other adult products relating to company’s ice cream flavours.

The agreement was made public on Tuesday resolves a trademark infringement  lawsuit that Ben & Jerry’s filed last September against the studio also known as Rodax Distributors Inc.

The lawsuit has called for the company to stop using the naming process after movies such as “Ben & Cherry’s” , “Boston Cream Thighs” and “Chocolate Fudge Babes” were used among other titles for movies.

Ben & Jerry’s had claimed that such titles were too similar to its ice cream flavors such as Boston Cream Pie, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Peanut Butter Cup.

The agreement also covers labels and packaging which looks similar to Ben & Jerry’s. The packaging which was used by Rodax Distributors featured puffy white clouds and grazing cows, and the slogan “Porno’s Finest.” Ben & Jerry’s uses the slogan “Vermont’s Finest.”

District Judge Lewis Caplan approved the consent judgement between the two parties on Monday. Rodax Distributors were not available for comment when asked by the Huffington Post. A lawyer for Ben & Jerry’s did not immediately respond to a similar request.

What do you guys think about this? Were they stupid to think that such titles would not go unnoticed by Ben & Jerry’s at all? Let us know in the comments below.
