Chubby Checker Files Ridiculous Trademark Infringement Lawsuit
Singer Chubby Checker (real name Ernest Evans) – famous for The Twist dance craze in the 1960s – and certain corporations that he controls have filed a lawsuit against Hewlett-Packard Company and Palm, Inc. concerning a no-longer-available app named “The Chubby Checker”.
The app purported to allow women to calculate the size of a man’s penis based on his shoe size. According to webOS Nation, the app was downloaded only 84 times before it was removed in September 2012 – yet press reports state that the plaintiffs are seeking damages of $500 million for trademark infringement and unfair competition!
