    [h=1]Finding X-rated 'Ben & Cherry's' in poor taste, Ben & Jerry's sues over trademark violation[/h]By The Associated Press | Associated Press






    NEW YORK, N.Y. - Ben & Jerry's sued the maker of "Ben & Cherry's" X-rated DVDs Wednesday, saying the "hardcore pornographic" films have smeared the ice cream maker's reputation.
    The trademark lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan said the sale of hardcore and exploitive pornographic DVDs and related goods is tarnishing Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc.'s name by creating an association with pornography.

    What's funny is that Ben and Jerry sold the company for millions a few years back. Stupid move trying to sue. The porn industry has made movies with "Star Wars," "Star Trek," "The Avengers" and other big franchises in the titles; They just add the word "Parody" in there somewhere. Paramount, Lucas Films and Disney know better than to waste money filing a suit while giving the pornos more exposure.
