Larry Flynt sues his nephews for using the Flynt name on X-rated videos


 

In the world of pornography, the name Larry Flynt carries serious cache. Which could explain why the porn media mogul is so eager to protect it by suing two of his nephews for trademark infringement. The suit alleges that Jimmy Flynt Jr. and Dustin Flynt branded two sexually explicit film series with the family name after being fired by their uncle in 2007. Larry Flynt says he only hired them out of familial obligation, and described them as incompetent employees. For their part, the nephews, while conceding they did use the Flynt name, argue that their material would not be mistaken for that of their uncle. The case is expected to go to jury in Los Angeles today.
