MJ Memorabilia Company -- Majorly T'd Off

6/17/2010 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's likeness is at the center of a serious turf war -- and now an official MJ merchandising company is trying to squash a website for getting all up in their t-shirt bidness.

0617_mj_shirts_EX
Bravado International -- which was empowered by the MJ estate to be the exclusive merchandising company of MJ memorabilia -- filed papers in L.A. federal court yesterday, claiming Emoda.com has been selling MJ t-shirts without permission.

Now Bravado is on the rampage and wants to clean out their tiny competition -- demanding three times the site's profits from the t-shirts, plus hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

really?    

If MJ is really dead you know that TMZ wishes he could be alive. I rather read an article about MJ watching paint dry than ANY of these other boring celebrities. Tiger Woods is so dull. Linsay Lohan..what has she really done? These are boooorng people and TMZ knows it.



God I hope MJ is alive by some miracle. Life without him is so... ehh...

Why can't we all make money off of MJ? I have a white cooking glove at home that I can put some rhinestones on.

hey i would like to see these guys win (emoda.com). I don't think they are doing anything wrong. (I do see the legal side) However I do think it's wrong for the amont of money that they (Bravado) are asking for.

I've been wanting to buy some MJ memorabilia, but only if it benefits the estate. I've seen things for sale, but since I don't know if anything that's for sale is legitimate or not, I don't buy anything. I wish the estate or Bravado would put some indication that the items are "estate approved" on them. The estate is just losing potential income by not making this clear.

I had a great father! He was nothing like you. I wish you could trade places with him. But, he is in heaven and you are in hell.

FPIC= Transexual Sooo... True... You are too bitc*y, to be a man. Big Bubba must have taken you under his wing, while you were doing your time. Have another drink to forget the past.
