Ben & Jerry's wins order to block pornographic copycat DVD sales

NEW YORK -- Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc. on Thursday won a court order temporarily blocking a producer of pornographic DVDs from selling and advertising titles with names similar to those of the company and its ice cream flavors.

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan in Manhattan ordered Caballero Video to stop selling 10 DVD titles in its “Ben & Cherry's” series and to remove references to the products from the Internet.

Kaplan issued his temporary restraining order one day after Ben & Jerry's sued Caballero, accusing the North Hollywood, California-based company of trademark infringement.

Ben & Jerry's sued over the sales of such titles as “Boston Cream Thighs,” “Chocolate Fudge Babes” and “Peanut Butter D-Cups,” which it said were rip-offs of its Boston Cream Pie, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Peanut Butter Cup flavors.
