Mariah Carey will not be the “Christmas queen” this year. Last August, the singer, famous for her festive title All I want for Christmas is you, had attempted to register this nickname as an official trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

But this request was ultimately rejected. As the media says Weekly entertainmentit is in particular to the artist Elizabeth Chan that Mariah Carey owes this refusal. The latter, which only produces discs related to Christmas, opposed the filing of the brands “Queen of Christmas”, “Princess of Christmas” and “QOC” by the popstar.

If the request had been successful, Mariah Carey could have sued anyone who used these titles but also asked any media to stop using the term “Christmas queen” to describe other people than her.

“No one should take Christmas away”

For her part, Elizabeth Chan justified her opposition to this trademark registration by explaining that, in her opinion, it was not very moral to try to “appropriate” Christmas.

“I strongly believe that no one should hoard anything around Christmas or monopolize it like Mariah is trying to do in perpetuity,” Elizabeth Chan said in an interview with Variety in August.

Faced with this reaction, Mariah Carey could have counter-attacked by providing elements that justify why, according to her, she deserved the title of one and only queen of Christmas. But the singer did not respond.
