Huge Suit Over Jackson, Stones, Guns & Doors

11/14/2009 1:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The company that hawks all things related to Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Guns N' Roses, Led Zeppelin and Red Hot Chili Peppers is demanding untold millions from the businesses that are illegally cashing in -- allegedly.

Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, Axl Rose, Jim Morrison

Bravado International Group claims it has the exclusive right to the merchandise of these huge musicians -- dead and alive. Bravado claims Dollar Days International, Alan Shrem and Kennedy-Shrem International are illegally using the names and likenesses of Michael Jackson, Jim Morrison and the other musical luminaries in the sale of shirts, watches, posters, play money and other stuff.

The suit -- filed in federal court in Los Angeles and obtained by TMZ -- makes specific mention of Jackson's most memorable works, including "Thriller" and "Bad."

And speaking of bad, Bravado wants $2 million for each violation.

I guess these people will never learn from the likes of MJ, Jim Morrison, etc... You can't take it with you.........Money is no guarantee of happiness or inner peace.

Without a doubt, the most powerful and beautiful voice of these singers in the picture is Jim Morrison of The Doors.....Gorgeous guys too but a messed up individual....

Bravado is making the chinese rich. They buy all that cheap crap and pawn it off to fans with a 1000% mark up. These folks are making the Jackson family trust richer by the day. Keep buying the junk.

Now are these Bravado people going to drive down every highway in the country to get the people hand painting shirts & selling them? I see 2 or 3 on either highway I travel. I have seen stuff in Dollar stores and Drugstores, and it's not marked bravado. Don't think they will catch them all.

Wait a minute. You expect us poor, innocent children to climb up dangerous scaffolding and paint naked people all over a church?
