Since it's not mentioned in the press release, I suppose you're wondering about the nature of this app, a piece of software that "adversely affects Chubby Checker's brand and value," has caused "serious damage to the Plaintiff's goodwill" and "will tarnish his image that he has worked to maintain over the last 50 years." Well, it's a third-party app for PalmOS that . . . here, I'll just include the description from an online app directory:
FOR ENTERTAINMENT!!! Any of you ladies out there just start seeing someone new and wondering what the size of there member is. Well now you can right now from your phone. All you need to do is find out the man's shoe size and plug it in and don't worry where your from because The Chubby Checker supports shoe measurements of different regions and types.
Come on, Chubby. How can you be half-a-billion dollars mad at something that dumb?
