Calif. porn maker to stop Ben & Jerry's spoofs

LOS ANGELES — The days of buying pornographic videos with names based on Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors are over.
Caballero Video has agreed to stop marketing "Boston Cream Thigh," ''Peanut Butter D-Cup" and other films spoofing the names of the venerable Vermont ice cream maker's products.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/16AKzzB ) reported Tuesday that the agreement settles a lawsuit Ben & Jerry's brought against Caballero last year.
According to the suit, 10 titles in Caballero's "Ben & Cherry's" series besmirched the ice cream maker's name and infringed its trademark.
Not only were the names similar to real Ben & Jerry's products, but the films' packaging also mimicked Ben & Jerry's clouds-and-cows logo.
The Los Angeles-based video company previously agreed to pull the titles until the suit was resolved.
