BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

All she wanted was her Christmas trademark

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey and her company Lotion LLC won’t be getting what they want this year: to trademark the artist as the “Queen of Christmas,” according to an article in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board on Tuesday terminated Carey’s bid to trademark the title after she and her company failed to respond to fellow singer Elizabeth Chan’s opposition to Ms. Carey’s trademark claim, according to the article.

The trademark would have allowed Ms. Carey, singer of the ever-popular 1994 holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas is You,” to brand a wide range of products, including fragrances, lotions, nail polish, jewelry, cups, mugs, sweatshirts, food and drink, ornaments and music, according to her application filed with the U.S Trademark Office in March 2021.

When her attempt to trademark “Queen of Christmas” became public in July, several other singers of holiday songs protested.
