All I want for Christmas is... not to be sued. 

Mariah Carey is facing a 20 million dollar lawsuit for copyright infringement.

It's over her hit Christmas single 'All I Want for Christmas Is You.'

She and co-writer Walter Afanasieff are being brought to court by songwriter Andy Stone.

He claims he co-wrote the song in 1989 but never permitted them to use it.

All I Want for Christmas Is You has become a global hit during the festive season.

The case will commence at the US District Court in the Eastern District of Louisiana.

Andy Stone claims Carey 'willfully and intentionally engaged in a campaign' to exclude him from the song.

The track featured on 'Merry Christmas', which was an album Mariah released in 1994.
