Mariah Carey Faces Lawsuit That Claims She Stole ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ Song

Mariah Carey Faces Lawsuit That Claims She Stole ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’

Mariah Carey is facing yet another lawsuit by the same songwriter, Vince Vance who sued Taylor Swift for stealing “Shake It Off” song.

Now with a more detailed lawsuit and a new train of representation, he filed a complaint on Wednesday in Los Angeles federal court. 

According to the lawsuit, he claimed that Carey’s 1994 holiday blockbuster infringed the copyrights to his 1989 song of the same name. 

Carey’s “All I Want” has reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 during each of the past four holiday seasons.

“Carey has without licensing, palmed off these works with her incredulous origin story, as if those works were her own,” Vance’s new lawyers wrote in the re-filed complaint. 

“Her hubris knowing no bounds, even her co-credited songwriter doesn’t believe the story she has spun. This is simply a case of actionable infringement.”

Vance is now represented by Gerard P. Fox, the same attorney who represented two songwriters who accused Taylor Swift of stealing the lyrics to “Shake It Off.”

Vance’s new complaint claims his own “All I Want for Christmas is You” was recorded by his Vince Vance and the Valiants in 1989 and had received “extensive airplay” during the 1993 holiday season. 

“The phrase ‘all I want for Christmas is you’ may seem like a common parlance today, in 1988 it was, in context, distinctive,” Vance’s new lawyers write. 

“Moreover, the combination of the specific chord progression in the melody paired with the verbatim hook was a greater than 50% clone of Vance’s original work, in both lyric choice and chord expressions.”
