Mariah Carey’s ‘Queen of Christmas’ trademark upsets singers

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” has become one of the biggest songs of the holiday season, but Carey wants to take things to the next level with her attempt to officially trademark the term “Queen of Christmas.”

Carey filed her trademark last March and the news was made public in July. According to the application that was filed with the U.S. Trademark Office, the trademarked term would cover a large range of items like lotions, fragrances, jewelry, mugs, clothes, food, ornaments, and of course, music. 

A lot of singers have come forward showing their resistance to the trademark claim. Singer Elizabeth Chan officially filed against Carey.

“Christmas has come way before any of us on earth, and hopefully will be around way after any of us on earth,” Chan told Variety. “That’s just not the right thing to do. Christmas is for everyone. It’s meant to be shared; it’s not meant to be owned.” 

“She’s trying to trademark this in every imaginable way-clothing, liquor products, masks, dog collars-it’s all over the map,” she said.

Singer Darlene Love also expressed her objection through a Facebook post. 

“David Letterman officially declared me the Queen of Christmas 29 years ago, a year before she released ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ and at 81 years of age I’m NOT changing anything,” she wrote on Facebook. “I’ve been in the business for 52 years, have earned it, and can still hit those notes! If Mariah has a problem call David or my lawyer!!”

Love sang “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” every year from 1986 to 2014 on Letterman’s show.
