Lawyers for Ernest Evans, singer-songwriter better known as Chubby Checker, found that their lawsuit against Hewlett-Packard for a penis-size app didn’t measure up in court. Mobile app “The Chubby Checker” was touted as a tool for men to measure the size of their penis. The app was supposed to be much easier than fooling around with that ol’ trusty traditional ruler.
“The Twist” singer didn’t take too kindly to the app being sold in the Hewlett-Packard app store. Evans filed a complaint against the tech company in 2012 for contributory trademark infringement. HP quickly removed the app from the store upon learning of the cease-and-desist letter from Evan’s attorneys. In the July 22 settlement, HP agreed to not use the singers name, trademark or likeness. The company didn’t admit liability, but said it had no involvement in creating or naming the app.
