Tue Dec 12, 2006 2:46 pm

Well if Mariah Carey is concerned about her identity being confused with the porn star, why is she giving the satifaction by promoting her?

Hmm, one sounds like a car alarm, the other gives professional grade head, how can those two be confused? Mariah's career has been dead for so long, does it really matter?

When I saw the thread title I was hoping it was George Carey the former Archbishop of Canterbury. Shame then that it turns out to be washed-up warbler Mariah  Sad

I suspect that Mariah is afraid that when people look at her doctor-enhanced body, that she is the one with the typical porn star body and hence must be the c*ck-sucking Mary Carey.

I think it all boils down to the original birth certificate that contains the actual names. Agreed??

If this chick is INDEED Mary Carey per her birth certificate, I don't see how its trademark infringement. Same goes with Mariah.

And we care because............??

Theres no way in holy hell she'll be allowed to trademark her name. Its bullshit. She's probably got an album coming out and wants herself in the papers.

Mariah's career has already committed hari-kari. Why not throw in a law suit against the Japanese as well.

See if Mariah really wanted to sell records, she would allow Mary in her video shoots, and then Mariah should join Mary in one of HER video shoots. I think everyone wins there. They both make money, and the consumer would be happy as well. Isnt the customer always right?

Mary should sue Mariah for doing boob jobs like her, because that's her "real trademark".

Now that is solved...is Mariah Carey the singers REAL name? If so, then Mary 'Carey' is a dumb blonde!

According to IMDB, Carey is her given surname. This whole issue reminds me allot of the flap a few years ago when Spike Lee tried suing Spike TV over the name... and that is not even his real name!

So there we have it..... Mary 'Carey' holds no water. I think Mariah has the right to bitch about whats going on: Mariah wins.
