Legendary BEATLES drummer Ringo Starr has dropped his legal battle against Screaming O Pleasure Products, who sell a line of “RingO” p*nis rings.
Ringo filed suit against the company in 2019. In his complaint, Starr claimed the brand was “identical in appearance, sound, connotation and pronunciation” to his own name. “Consumers will likely believe that Opposer’s [Starr’s] newest venture is sex toys — and this is an association that Opposer does not want.”
While most mentions of the RingO brand include the capital ‘O’, there are a few instances online where the products are categorized under the “Ringo Collection.”
A settlement has now been made between the two parties, with the p*nis ring makers promising they’ll “avoid any activity likely to lead to confusion” between their product and Ringo Starr. The deal adds that the name can only be used for adult sex aids and desensitizing sprays, and must include a space between ‘Ring’ and ‘O’.
