Mariah Carey No Longer Being Sued Over Hit Song ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’

As we reported back in the summer, Superstar singer MARIAH CAREY was sued over her hit son “All I Want for Christmas is You.”

The songwriter who accused MARIAH CAREY of stealing “All I Want for Christmas is You” from him has dropped the lawsuit, it’s a Christmas miracle.

The “Hero” hitmaker was sued over the summer by Vince Vance, who claimed that her 1994 Christmas Classic hit single had ripped off his 1989 song of the same name, but in a court filing, the artist’s legal team moved to voluntarily dismiss the case, Billboard reports.

However it wasn’t dismissed with extreme prejudice which leaves the door open for Vince to refile the lawsuit at a later date if he so chooses.

In his original lawsuit, Vince claimed he had recorded his own ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ in 1989 and it had received “extensive airplay” during the 1993 festive season, a year before Mariah released her megahit under the same title.

The following is from MSN.com:

He branded the later track a “derivative” of his own and was seeking $20 million in damages from the 52-year-old singer, co-writer Walter Afanasieff and Sony Music. 

Experts had previously insisted it would be tough for Vince to win his case as the songs had very few similarities, other than an identical name and a single lyric. 

Paul Fakler, music litigator at Mayer Brown, said when the case was filed: “The only similarity he claims is in the title of the song, not the music or lyrics. Words and short phrases are not protectable under copyright law, and there are dozens of other songs with that same title.” 

Lawyers for the singer have not commented on why they have dropped the case – which was still in the earliest procedural stages – or whether there are any plans to refile it in the future.
