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.

84. 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.

Since, you DO NOT have a license to practice Cosmetology, you do not know what you are talking about!!

Any chemical that is applied to the human hair will cause it to burn!!!!

That's a FACT!!!!

just sayin    

both these companies are really stupid and pathetic, do they really think anyone is going to rush out to buy their mj wig, wtf is the world coming to when people feel the need to make money off a dead man. this is actually an insult to fans, just because i liked his music doesn't mean i need to rush out and buy anything mj related, frankly all i want to see is new music being released, the rehearsal footage and the bad tour put on dvd every other thing can f**k off for all i care
