MJ's Estate Suing His Mother's Business Partner

michael-jackson-estate-suing-howard-mann.jpg

Things are getting a bit sticky on the Jackson family front.

Sources have confirmed that today, Michael Jackson's Estate has filed a lawsuit against Howard Mann, Katherine Jackson's business partner. The estate claims that Howard has violated copyright, trademark and cyber piracy laws by using Michael's name and image without permission.

In a statement released by the estate's lawyer, they claim:

"The Estate had hoped Mann would voluntarily cease his conduct but that was not to be…People who trade off Michael's personality, copyrights, and trademarks should not be allowed to exploit the legacy of one of the world's most recognized talents for their own benefit."

This is bound to get ugly! The courts are going to have their hands full with nothing, but MJ centric cases.

Katherine Jackson Ca$hes In On Michael's Death Once Again!

ap050324012272mj__opt.jpg

How can these people sleep at night?

Katherine Jackson is making money off of exploiting the death of her son, Michael, by producing and distributing a variety of movies about the pop stars life - once again with the sleazy Howard Mann!

Mann has bought the rights to 26 hours of home video footage in an eight figure deal! This normally would not be legal, because only Jackson's estate is capable of using his name and image, but Mann believes that because Katherine is involved, and she is a beneficiary, then he is in the clear!

Disgusting disgusting.

What do U think?? Should this douche be allowed to profit off of Michael Jackson??

Michael Jackson's Estate Lawyer Wants To Stop Katherine Jackson Book From Being Published!

We knew there was something shady about all of this shiz!

Katherine Jackson has teamed with bussinessman Howard Mann to publish coffee table book Never Can Say Goodbye, which will feature personal information and family photos of Michael, and is set to be released on the anniversary of his death.

Well, apparently we weren't alone when we thought this was all in pretty poor taste - the Jackson estate lawyer Howard Weitzman is NOT happy about it either, and thinks that Mann "may be using his relationship with Mrs. Jackson to infringe upon Michael Jackson's copyrights … to the detriment of, among others, Michael's 3 kids."

He also is ready to take "whatever action is necessary to prevent him from unlawfully profiting."

Mann apparently also is behind making record deals for 273 unreleased tracks from the King of Pop, all of which he acquired in a fire sale after Joe Jackson didn't pay for the storage space!

This guy sounds awful!

We hope someone will intervene and keep Katherine away from this slime ball before he exploits her family more!

Thoughts??
