Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Lawyers 'Take Back' Trademarks

Michael Jackson's estate executors have dismissed reports they've agreed to allow bosses of the Heal the World Foundation to use the King of Pop's name, insisting they are "taking back" all the Thriller hitmaker's trademarks.
Reports on Tuesday (19Apr11) suggested officials at the organisation had worked out a deal with Jackson's executors on Monday (18Apr11) allowing them to utilise the pop superstar's moniker.
But lawyers involved in the case have now spoken out, insisting Heal the World Foundation owner Melissa Johnson is barred from using Jackson's name.
A spokesman for the estate executors tells WENN, "The estate is taking back the Heal the World Foundation and all of the Michael Jackson trademarks it allegedly owned. The Michael Jackson Estate owns the Heal the World name, and neither Melissa Johnson nor her companies will ever be able to use Michael Jackson's name or the Heal the World name."

MJ founded Heal the World and no one else should be able to use the name which would associate it with MJ. I hope that his children will one day start the foundation again as they want to continue his charitable work. He would have loved that!! Miss you more and more everyday MJ! The world is just not the same without you!

This is such wonderful news! I can't wait until the estate lawyers go after other people that are using Michael's name to make a buck, including some of his triffling family members. MICHAEL I PRAY THAT ONE DAY YOU WILL FIND THE PEACE YOU SO DESERVE IN YOUR OTHER LIFE..... LOVE MARY
