Mariah Carey is looking to derail the trademark bid of a California porn star on the grounds that:
...the public is "likely to mistakenly associate the goods offered" by Mary Carey--whose real name is Mary Cook--with the performer's "goods and services."
"Mary Carey", if she is granted rights to that name, has appeared in movies like "Hot Showers 6" and "Lesbian Big Boob Bangeroo 2". She also (and here's the political angle) received 11,000 votes in the 2003 California Gubanatorial election won by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Mariah (best rack in Rock) Carey is a world-famous singer, musical performer, and celebrity. She also appeared in the 2001 film "Glitter".
The tv is showing a story about a kitten than got stuck up on a roof and had to be rescued by TO fire-men. I'm writing about Mariah Carey. It's a slow news-day, obviously.
