Mariah Carey vs. Mary Carey

    Singer Carey seeks to derail Mary Carey trademark bid

    DECEMBER 28--After threatening legal action to protect her valuable name from an encroaching porn star, Mariah Carey yesterday filed a formal opposition to the bid by actress (and former California gubernatorial candidate) Mary Carey to trademark her stage name. In a notice filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the pop singer's company, Automatic Princess Holdings, argues that Mary Carey's bid to trademark her name for use in adult films, DVDs, cassettes, computer programs, and other commercial endeavors is likely to result in confusion for the consumer. The public, Mariah Carey contends, is "likely to mistakenly associate the goods offered" by Mary Carey--whose real name is Mary Cook--with the performer's "goods and services." The December 27 notice of opposition, a copy of which you'll find below, requests that Mary Carey's trademark attempt be rejected by USPTO officials. Mary Carey, 26, has appeared in films like "Hot Showers 6" and "Lesbian Big Boob Bangeroo 2," and received 11,000 votes in her 2003 election won by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Mariah Carey, 36, is, as her filing notes, "a world-famous singer, musical performer, and celebrity." She also appeared in the 2001 film "Glitter."

    Adult movies have the funniest titles: Lesbian Big Boob Bangeroo 2
    . . . . the '2' implies there was a Lesbian Big Boob Bangeroo before that one!

    mariah, just let the nice lady go back to doing her movies...

    and, besides, i'm pretty sure "her name is sorta like mine" isn't really means for going to court. and, more importantly, how is it confusing for the consumer? i'm pretty sure no one is going out to pick up 'big boob bangeroo' AND the newest mariah carey cd to flop at the same. if ever. let it die.
