The singer Chubby Checker has settled a suit in which he accused Hewlett-Packard Co of using his trademarked name without permission on a software app that purported to measure the size of a man’s penis.
Checker, 72, is best known for his 1960 song The Twist, a No. 1 hit on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 that inspired an international dance craze.
In his February 2013 suit against HP and its Palm unit, the singer objected to HP having in October 2006 begun online sales of “The Chubby Checker” app, which purported to let women estimate the size of a man’s genitals based on his shoe size.
A federal judge last August let Checker pursue part of his case, saying one might infer that HP should have known that “the owner of the Chubby Checker mark would never have consented to license the mark for such a vulgar purpose”.
