Michael Jackson’s estate sues Disney
Did you hear about the Michael Jackson documentary The Last Days Of Michael Jackson? Turns out Michael’s estate sued the Walt Disney Co and ABC over the documentary.
ABC broadcast the documentary last week (May 24).
According to the lawsuit, the documentary used Michael’s songs & music videos without permission. “Like Disney, the lifeblood of the estate’s business is its intellectual property. Yet for some reason, Disney decided it could just use the estate’s most valuable intellectual property for free.”
However, representatives for ABC added the film “did not infringe on his estate’s right.” Disney’s legal team says the music fell under “fair use” because of the nature of the documentary.
Buckle up, this one is going to get Bad.
