Michael Jackson Estate VS Mellisa Johnson HTWF Settles out of court

Heal The World Foundation will NOW be reactivated as a legitimate Michael Jackson charity ALL rights and copyrights going back to the MJ Estate. I will update as More info comes in ~ Qbee

Michael Jackson's estate reached a settlement Tuesday that ended its lengthy fight with a nonprofit that claimed it was the successor to the singer's Heal the World charity. The deal came just as a trial was set to begin to decide ownership of lucrative trademarks.

OFFICIAL Statement From the Estate of Michael Jackson:

@MJonlineteam said: "Press reports on TMZ and other media sites regarding the settlement terms between the Michael Jackson Estate and the Heal the World defendants are wrong. The Estate is taking back the Heal the World Foundation and all of the Michael Jackson trademarks it allegedly owned.

The Michael Jackson Estate owns the Heal the World name, and neither Melissa Johnson nor her companies will ever be able to use Michael Jackson's name or the Heal the World name."

Additional Imformation coming in ..The Estate has taken back all rights to the Heal the World Foundation. It will be re-activated and directed by John Branca, John McClain and Katherine Jackson

There are rumors Mellisa Johnson may be allowed to sit on the board but untill the foundation is reactivated under the MJ Estate the board hasnt actually been formed yet. Regardless she will hold no control and can only advise as a board member. Details still being worked out with Melissa Johnson, but she no longer has any rights to Michael's name or the charity.
