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.

You have to feel and know what's inside a person heart; therefore, any picture of Michael is beautiful.

Well well. Tito is part of the religious family that forgives. He forgave Conrad Murray. Then, everyone sings for their Michael in religious concerts & 'tributes'.
Of course, when the gay gossip happened, Jermaine was in mock outrage mode. Jermaine cursed relentlessly, as though his noseless brother was normal & healthy before the fat gay guys killed him..

People who does not know Michael, those people are the only people who speak it barbaric.
All those who knew Michael are outraged by the calumnies of mobs and deceitful people. People who only care about playing in front of a computer for fun, without taking into account the harm they cause.
Those who know Michael as he was, I could never say anything negative about the. WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON.
ONLY HERE I SEE EVIL, and Unknown.

Is there a law against putting up a younger (80s or early 90s) picture of Michael? He was such a cutie then. Why choose the most unflattering pics ever for every single posting?

As an artist this concerns me...I beleive part of my job as an artist is to record and witness our time...something MJ was a big part of weather you liked him or not. If I painted MJ would i get my pants sued off? MJ is a historical figure and I dont think anyone should "own" his image.

Money.
Money...
Lie for it
Spy for it
Kill for it
Die for it
So you call it trust
But I say it's just
In the devil's game
Of greed and lust
They don't care
They'd do me for the money
They don't care
They use me for the money
So you go to church
Read the Holy word
In the scheme of life
It's all absurd
They don't care
They'd kill for the money
Do or dare
The thrill for the money
You're saluting the flag
Your country trusts you
Now you're wearing a badge
You're called the "Just Few"
And you're fighting the wars
A soldier must do
I'll never betray or deceive you my friend but...
If you show me the cash
Then I will take it
If you tell me to cry
Then I will fake it
If you give me a hand
Then I will shake it
You'll do anything for money...
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Insurance?
Where do your loyalties lie?
Is that your alibi?
I don't think so
You don't care
You'd do her for the money
Say it's fair
You sue her for the money
Want your pot of gold
Need the Midas touch
Bet you sell your soul
Cuz your God is such
You don't care
You kill for the money
Do or dareThe thrill for the money
Are you infected with the same disease
Of lust, gluttoney and greed?
Then watch the ones
With the biggest smiles
The idle jabbers...Cuz they're the backstabbers
If you know it's a lie
Then you will swear it
If you give it with guilt
Then you will bear it
If it's taking a chance
Then you will dare it
You'll do anything for money...
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you

For all the money in the world
I don't think soIf you show me the man
Then I will sell him
If you ask me to lie
Then I will tell him
If you're dealing with God
Then you will hell him
You'll do anything for money
Anything
