Chubby Checker suing HP over penis-estimating app


UPI News Service, 02/14/2013 

A Florida lawsuit filed on behalf of singer Chubby Checker accuses Hewlett-Packard and subsidiary Palm Inc. of using his name to sell a penis-estimating app.

Attorney Willie Gary filed the lawsuit Monday in a Fort Piece federal court alleging the company's Palm APP Catalog, which sells apps for Palm smartphones, sells an app called "The Chubby Checker" designed to estimate the size of a man's penis based on his shoe size, TCPalm.com reported Thursday.

The lawsuit says the 71-year-old singer, whose real name is Ernest Evans, has a trademark on the name "Chubby Checker" for use in his business interests.

"Defendants' use of the name 'Chubby Checker' in its app is likely to associate plaintiff's (trade) marks with the obscene, sexual connotation and images," the lawsuit states.

TCPalm did not have a comment from Hewlett-Packard or Palm Inc.
