Company Wigs Out -- Sues Over M.J. Costumes

8/24/2009 11:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael jacksonA company that makes those ornate powdered wigs for solicitors and barristers in England, claims it has exclusive rights to market Michael Jackson wigs and is suing a costume company that got into the act.

R.H. Smith & Sons has been making those white English wigs for more than a century. In a lawsuit filed in federal court in New York, the company complains Rubie's Costume Company has been sending emails around claiming it's got exclusive worldwide rights to market Jacko wigs, costumes and accessories.

R.H. Smith & Sons begs to differ, claiming it's under license from MJ Licensing LLC to market MJ wigs, costumes and accessories -- and says Rubie's claims to exclusivity has damaged their business.

The company wants an injunction prohibiting Rubie's from pushing the products. They also want Rubie's to contact everyone it's been in touch with claiming rights to the products and correct the error. R.H. also wants damages.

Better yet set your own hair on fire and make a video of it and post it. Then we'll all compare.

In case this needs to be said... I'm just being sarcastic. Don't really do it...Geeez

Poor MJ, they are still not leaving him alone.
Everyone knows that he went over the top with the plastic surgery, but he always looked so smart, fantastic clothes befitting the King of Pop.
Whether he wore a wig or not is nobody's business but his.
I still miss you Michael.

people DIE from 3rd and 4th degree burns. So to those who say they are glad that happened to him or anyone ...i pray for you. I mean no matter if you hate someone, why would you wish that on them? And then on top of that, how can you hate someone so deeply that you never met? God, your life must be an empty hole for you to have gotten so filled up with hate. I don't love or hate the man, never knew him, but at least i understand human frailties. He is dead now, are you happy about that too? I think from now on no one should bother to even respond to these types of comments any longer. these people are not simple haters, they are most likely atheist, soul- less pits of darkness not even worthy of being acknowledged

**You are very miserable within your own life my friend and it shows, may god give you the attention and peace that you seek. Please look at yourself mirror.... and what do you see? How do you feel? Before you cast the first stone, judge, or ridicule. Free your own soul for salvaltion... if you are living your life anywhere near the way you are expressing yourself here... You are damned to hell on the express. May God have mercy on your soul... Many Blessings my friend... you need all of them that you can get....

God please forgive us... and have mercy. Please forgive the wicked who walk among your angels here at this temporary home on earth, until we reach the Paradise of your Kingdom.

Michael what a standing ovation they must of gave you as you walked through those beautiful white gates to cross over to our father. Michael we love you and god we thank you for all that you do.

One of Gods Angels~ Yes, we walk the earth in flesh, just as Michael did.

I don't care what MJ had in his hair, Manda038. Real hair still doesn't burn that way and I have the first hand experience to prove that fact. I was burning some flamable rags at work years ago and was standing to close when I ignited them. The flames whooshed up and part of my hair singed away in a flash. NOT BURNED...SINGED AWAY IN A FLASH!!! I gave you the way to see for yourself. Cut off a small portion of your own hair and set fire to it and see for yourself. Oh, one more thing. I wasn't hurt in the incident. Sorry Charlie.

Yes, Michael knew how to use a computer. He spent hours and hours purchasing things online.

During the Neverland raid his computer was found to contain many kiddie porn sites, even the private sites that are the hardest to access.

Just in time for Halloween! You too can be a horribly disfigured, drug-addled, child-fiddling freak! You'll be certain to the freakiest, scariest beast in your neighborhood! Just be careful when people try to set you on fire.

HATERS ARE DESPERATE!    

42. sanityrose,

If you really feel that people have the right to their opinions, then don't come on here and scold people for having their opinions or for admonishing others who use derrogatory epithets to refer to Michael Jackson. Fan or not, we can disagree with someone's actions and still maintain a certain respect for their person, beginning with their name.

People will take exception for offensive epithets being used against Mr. Jackson because that is abusive and has absolutely nothing to do with free speech. If anything it has everything to do with hate speech.

People should come and discuss what they think without resorting to offensive comments. That is a reasonable and the minimal basis for any democratic form of dialogue.

Very well stated! Thank you!

As Michael's song goes, they need to start with the man in the mirror!
