Back in June, we reported on Andy Stone, who had issued proceedings against Mariah Carey on grounds of copyright infringement over the title of the hit Christmas song “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. Stone, who took 28 years to bring his claim against Mariah Carey, has since pulled the plug on the proceedings. The claim has been dropped “in its entirety without prejudice”, which means Stone can still bring a claim on the same grounds in the future. Stone was seeking in excess of £17 million ($20 million) worth of damages from Carey for the alleged infringement, even though the claim related only to the song titles, not the songs themselves. It will be interesting to see if Stone seeks to bring the claim again in the future, or if he is content to keep this dispute away from the courtroom.
