    Is this news?

    No force of nature can break your will to self motivate.

    So, does anybody know the answer to this question? If you do, please, respond. Thanks in advance.
    God, I thank you for allowing Michael to continue to watch over his children:

    Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket ("Bigi").

    According to this, yes they do. And they own Mijac that owns his publishing.

    Sony Buys Michael Jackson's Stake In Lucrative Music Catalog






    ELIZABETH BLAIR
    FacebookTwitter








    Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson in 1983. Jackson's share of the rights to many Beatles songs has been purchased by Sony.


    AFP/AFP/Getty Images


    The Sony Corporation has announced it will pay Michael Jackson's estate $750 million for Jackson's 50 percent share of the Sony/ATV music publishing company.
    The backstory here has more twists and shouts than a long and winding road (Couldn't resist, but note that the rights to both "Twist and Shout" and "The Long and Winding Road" belong to Sony/ATV). Sony's purchase marks the culmination of one of the most remarkable stories in the history of the music business.
    It all started when Paul McCartney advised his young friend Michael Jackson that, to really make money in the music industry, you needed to own the publishing of hit songs. McCartney told CBS-TV in a 1989 interview that Jackson joked to him "One day I'll own your songs." To McCartney's shock, Jackson was true to his word.
    A music publisher owns the rights to a song's lyrics and composition. Anytime a song is performed, played on TV or radio, used in a commercial, etc., the publisher collects royalties. Contracts vary but, traditionally, that money is split 50/50 with the songwriter.
    In 1985, music publisher ATV owned the rights to some 4,000 songs, including more than 200 by The Beatles. It also owned Little Richard's Tutti Frutti. Michael Jackson's lawyer, John Branca, knew Jackson was looking for songs to buy. When Branca learned that the Australian tycoon who owned ATV was putting the company up for sale, Branca and Jackson put in a bid. After long, tense negotiations, Jackson was able to purchase ATV for a reported $47.5 million.
    In the mid-1990s, when Jackson was in debt, he sold half of ATV to Sony, forming the joint venture Sony/ATV. To get full ownership, Sony offered Jackson's estate $750 million.
    The Sony/ATV catalog has swelled over the years and now owns or administers the copyrights to more than three million songs, including hits by Sting, Lady Gaga and Alicia Keyes. The company controls some of the best known songs in the world, including "Over The Rainbow" and "New York, New York." One analyst tells Bloomberg, with the increase in streaming, the trove's worth is more than what Sony's paying for it.
    As for Michael Jackson's estate, it still owns Jackson's master recordings as well as Mijac Music, the publishing company that owns all of the songs he wrote. In a statement by co-executors John Branca and John McClain, the sale to Sony will allow them to maximize the "the value of Michael's Estate for the benefit of his children."

    Then they need to leave Sony and go work for someone else! Perhaps "Apple"?! I don't know. I have mixed emotions about that company but obviously Sony with all of their means and resources the last twenty years have not wanted to promote Michael as well as they could have.

    I never questioned this: Because the master tapes / the vault are Michaelīs legacy. No master tapes no Estate, IMO. But, correct, me if Iīm wrong ... :-)

    The Estate is 100%-owner of Michael`s MIJAC-catalog, which contains the rights of MIchaels music and the catalog is dept-free now.

    Even if they "owned" the masters I would highly doubt Michael would let music that he was working on outside of a vacuum of people working on the project(s).. legally owning and actually having are two different things. After leaks, not saying I KNOW Michael.. But I could see him cutting people outside of who is working on the tracks out of any physical holdings of his newer music.. Even than have people work on there parts and not getting the full thing.. ie why we heard people like will.i.am saying he only has the instrumental and Michael had the vocal etc.
    **He lives forever within us**

    It depends on whether you're talking about unreleased or released material. They still don't have quite a lot of the unreleased stuff in their possession. People aren't willing to give them over if they're going to be remixed and released that way.
