Mariah Carey‘s bid to trademark the moniker, “Queen of Christmas” has been opposed by some fairly well-known singers, together with legend Darlene Love, however there’s precedent on Mariah’s aspect … with the likes of Michael Jackson, no much less.
Mariah has filed authorized docs with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Workplace to personal the title, “Queen of Christmas.” There have been objections … singer Elizabeth Chan filed an opposition to Mariah’s petition, claiming nobody can “monopolize” the phrase “Christmas.”
Darlene Love, whose XMAS tune “Christmas (Child Please Come Dwelling)” is inarguably probably the greatest, posted on Fb, “Is it true that Mariah Carey trademarked ‘Queen of Christmas?'” She famous David Letterman bestowed the title on her 29 years in the past so it is not accessible to Mariah.
Nobody, aside from Mariah, has petitioned for the title, however that does not imply she’ll get it. Michael Jackson by no means tried to register “King of Pop” throughout his lifetime, however others tried and failed, as a result of it was so recognized with MJ it will trigger confusion within the market. BTW, the Jackson Property did register the title after MJ’s demise and blunted efforts by others to make use of the identical title.
As for Elizabeth Chan’s opposition that nobody can monopolize the phrase “Christmas,” that does not appear to be the case. We discovered logos the place somebody was allowed to register “Thanksgiving” for a line of wine, “Pleased Valentine’s Day” for fruit juices, and there is even “Christmas Spirit” — yeah, it is booze! So, the trail could also be clear for Mariah.
Mariah, fact be informed, has one of the if not the most well-liked XMAS tune ever — “All I Need For Christmas Is You” — however she has not been recognized as “Queen of Christmas” like MJ was with “King of Pop.” So, it will appear she wants the trademark to safe the title.
There’s so much on the road for Mariah … she desires to make use of the title for fragrances, lotions, nail polish, jewellery, cups, mugs, chocolate milk, coconut water, ornaments, toys, canine clothes, masks for cover in opposition to viral an infection, lingerie and sweatshirts.
BTW … Mariah’s additionally attempting to register “Princess Christmas” and “Christmas Princess.”
“All I Need for Christmas Is You” shoots to the highest of charts each single 12 months.
