Ben & Jerry's Destroy Hollywood Porn Studio in Ice Cream Court Case

Ben & Jerry's has demolished Hollywood porn make Caballero Video in a court case that will see the end of videos such as Boston Cream Thigh, Peanut Butter D-Cup and Fudge Babes.

Caballero had attempted to make money with titles based on the well-known Ben & Jerry's ice creams, though it's ended badly. The studio's products also featured the same clouds and cows used the ice-cream company's branding and Ben & Jerry's launched a court case in 2012 claiming 10 titles besmirched its name and infringed trademark.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a US federal judge had ordered the company to freeze its marketing and take the movies off the shelves whilst the case was decided, deciding to force Caballero to scrap the movies permanently. 

Ben & Jerry's has been known to choose risky names for its own products - Karamel Sutra and Schweddy Balls being two of them - and it's ice-cream containers carry the tagline 'Size Matters.' Recently, it released a Facebook matchmaking app called 'Wanna Spoon?'

The company was also criticized for offending Irish people were a Black and Tan flavour. The Black and Tans were a notorious British militia responsible for the Bloody Sunday massacre of 12 people at a Dublin football match in 1920 as well as other brutalities during the Irish war of independence.
