That is pretty cool. I always love listening to thriller and the short film is the best. Love it

Would that affect all those who sell stuff on amazon and ebay?
23
I don't think so. Usually when something like this happens, The Estate shut down the company and stop the products from being sold

I assume that the estate will be looking for some of the proceeds instead of stopping them from selling these

Michael Jackson Estate Sues Japanese Companies Over Unauthorised Merchandise
by WENN | 10 October 2013


The administrators of Michael Jackson's estate have targeted the bosses of three companies in Japan with a lawsuit, demanding they stop the production and sale of the singer's merchandise without their permission.

Last month (Sep13), a lawsuit was filed in the Tokyo District Court against Ryosuke Matsuura and three companies, Michael Jackson Asian Rights, Michael Jackson Enterprises and Michael Jackson World, ordering officials to stop using the name and likeness of the King of Pop without consent.

The companies sell the Jackson memorabilia through online sites, and products range from towels to postcards and lighters.

The estimated value of the unauthorised products is 123 million yen ($1.23 million), but the estate is not seeking financial compensation.

A statement from the estate reads: "Many in Japan have been misled by the defendants. Michael loved his millions of Japanese fans, all of whom deserve the opportunity to purchase legitimate and authentic Michael Jackson goods."

The lawyers for the estates go on to state: "The defendants are taking advantage of the fact that Michael is dead to act as though they have obtained the rights."

Some of these I have not seen before and have been reading them.  Michael definitely was looking to the future.  Still find it hard to believe what happened in June 2009

No live coverage of Michael Jackson-AEG trial, judge rules
By Jeff Gottlieb
April 5, 2013, 5:43 p.m.


A Superior Court judge ruled Friday that there will be no live television coverage of the wrongful death suit that Michael Jackson’s mother and children filed against Anschutz Entertainment Group, the entertainment giant that was promoting Jackson’s ill-fated comeback tour.

CNN and NBCUniversal Television Group had filed a motion asking that they be allowed to televise the trial, which is being held in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom.

In her ruling, Judge Yvette M. Palazuelos wrote that while the media has the right to cover public court hearings, it is up to the judge to decide whether to allow TV coverage.

Brian Panish, the attorney for Katherine Jackson, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson II, declined comment.

But Panish had supported television coverage in an April 2 court filing in which he criticized AEG’s attorney for “making numerous unrelated and disparaging remarks about Michael Jackson” in a CNN interview.

AEG’s attorney, Marvin Putnam, could not be reached for comment.

Jury selection in the case began Tuesday, with potential jurors being asked if they could take off the four months the trial is expected to last. Questioning of potential jurors who pass that first test is scheduled to start April 15.

The suit alleges that AEG negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who -- in an attempt to help the singer sleep -- gave him a fatal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol.  They suit says that AEG pushed Jackson to prepare for a tour that he was not physically capable of handling.

AEG says it was Jackson’s decision to hire Murray, and that the company had recommended a British physician.
