|Ben & Jerry's signature ice cream label|
A company is in hot water after turning cold ice cream flavors into x rates movies.
Ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s has sued an x rated movie maker for allegedly infringing the names of their ice cream flavors with a series of movies called Ben & Cherry’s.
The company changed some of the best known of Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors into the titles of their movies, according to a complaint filed by Ben & Jerry's, a subsidiary of Unilever NV, this week in federal court in Manhattan.
For example, Boston cream pie became Boston Cream Thigh, Chocolate Fudge Brownie was changed to Chocolate Fudge Brownie Babes and Peanut Butter Cup became Peanut Butter D-Cups, the lawsuit said.
DVD jackets also imitate the product containers of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, according to the lawsuit. Ben & Jerry’s is asking the court to stop the company Rodax Distributors Inc, from making movies that infringe or sell their brands. It also seeks monetary damages.
Rodax Distributors, a California based company that manufactures and sells adult movies and products, did not immediately return a call for comment.
