Michael Jackson's Copyrights Violated From Beyond The Grave!

| Filed under: Legal MattersMichael Jackson


A federal court ruled this week that Katherine Jackson's business associate, Howard Mann, violated Michael Jackson's copyrights on his intellectual property.

In English, that means that this Howard guy was using MJ's trademarks, copyrights, name, likeliness and other things to make a profit.


Michael's estate lawyer filed a lawsuit last year claiming that all those assets are owned by the estate and can only be used for the benefit of Michael's immediate family.

As it should be.

The court found that Howard used MJ's copyrights in bad faith with the intent to profit from using his intellectual property on his various websites.

An attorney in the trial said:

"The court’s ruling means that a trial set for September 4, 2012 will involve how much in damages the Michael Jackson Estate is entitled to collect from Mann and his various entities."

So instead of leeching off of MJ and making money, Howard Mann will most likely be paying shiz tonnnns of ca$h to the Jackson estate.

That's what you get for trying to illegally profit off the King of Pop!

Rest in peace, MJ. If that's even possible!

    At this stage Perez, not sure i'll ever believe what you post on your website site after what you said about Michael Jackson in the past and how you're taking the Kristen Stewart affair too personal… Lost respect for you or anything you do
