Porn maker to stop Ben and 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 reported 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.
