Don’t mess with Micheal Jackson. That is the message sent out by the Estate of Micheal Jackson, who announced that they are suing ABC and its parent company Disney, for their recent airing of the special The Last Days of Micheal Jackson. The special, which aired on Thursday, May 24 on ABC, was made up of interviews with Jackson himself, his family, associates, collaborators, biographers and media figures, and and covered his career as well as his last days.
The Estate alleges that ABC used footage it owns without getting permission to do so.
The complaint says:
“Disney and ABC committed willful and intentional copyright infringement when they used the Estate’s copyrighted materials without the Estate’s permission. Disney’s conduct here was particularly surprising given that it has no tolerance for anyone using its copyrighted material in even the most trivial of manners.
