Jackson Merchandisers Sue Clothing Firm

Official MICHAEL JACKSON merchandisers are suing the bosses of a clothing company for allegedly selling unauthorised KING OF POP items.
Lawyers for Bravado International Group, a firm which holds the rights to create Jackson products, have filed a federal lawsuit against executives at Oregon-based T-Line Design, Inc., seeking $750 (£500) for each image of Jackson used without permission.
They're also demanding statutory damages of $150,000 (£100,000), reports TMZ.com.
The website claims Bravado bosses have filed similar infringement suits against two other firms selling Jackson tribute items.
