Michael Jackson Peeps Teed Off Over T-Shirts

5/4/2010 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

God help anyone who uses a picture of Michael Jackson to hawk their products, because the licensee of MJ's image is going after some new companies with a vengeance.

Bravado International Group -- which markets all things Michael -- is suing T-Line Design, Inc. based in Oregon.

According to the federal suit, obtained by TMZ, T-Line is downright "defiant," sardonically writing a blog that says, "...it SUCKS TOTAL BOLLOCKS when people steal those creations..."

The suit seeks $750 for each image illegally used, as well as statutory damages of $150,000.

Bravado filed two other infringement suits today against two other companies for unauthorized MJ stuff.

I dont blame the Jackson family for being upset at Dr. Klein and this other guy; discussing things of that nature when Michael isn't able to speak for himself. You people are a trip. You need Jesus. It doesn't surprise me; it's what vultures do. In behalf of Michael's fans, as his number one fan. I am upset, too. As far as I am concerned. Whatever Michael has not confirmed, I don't receive it. No matter WHAT is said about you, Michael, I will love you, sweetheart. All of your TRUE fans will. To the Jackson family; we the fans love you all and overlook all of this madness. To Dr. Klein and his friend, I'm praying for you.

I loved him...so much...his music, his art...but now...I'm very tired...I believe he is not dead but death is not a game. Death always win at the end! Take care Mister Mundson!

oh, tmz...again with the passive aggressive jibes at MJ through your choice of pictures. i suppose you chose this particular one to emphasize his discolored hands in comparison to his face? you are very transparent and no better than the losers you chase for interviews about him (arnie klein, etc). do you ever tire of dehumanizing someone, even after his death? is that fun for you all? it's like a sick sport for you and the rest of the media and those who eat this crap up. pathetic.

Being I live in Oregon and our economy needs a boost, I will try to get my hands on one of these T-shirts. Supporting the Jackson family (if you can call them that) is not of interest to me.



Come and get me! Come and get me!

Is this T-shirt of a skull I have violating this? I mean the skull doesn't have a nose, so it looks a lot like Michael Jackson.
