QVC, HSN fight for 'Christmas' phrase

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

The rivalry between QVC and HSN is getting heated, as the two shopping nets duke it out for control of the phrase “Christmas in July.”

QVC says it started the sales-enhancing promo in 1987, but HSN claims it moved to copyright it in 2000.

Dispute will be settled, not by Santa Claus, but in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.
