    You're comment an year old but i totally agree. Michael made sure all his fans was welcome and good access to these events. the estate needs to do the same because that how Michael would of loved it. as a fan and my mother we can't go to half these events because their not close to our state. i live in the usa.

    I have just learnt, today, that Tom Mesereau is serving as Special Counsel to John Branca and is assisting the Estate's lawyers to prepare for this lawsuit. Robson and Safechuck do not have a hope in hell of succeeding.

    What's the reason they can't pursue a claim against Michael Jackson...again.

    The statute of limitations prevents them from making a claim against Michael himself, a.k.a. the MJ Estate and their claims and/or appeals have already been denied; something to do with the time frame of when they "realised" they'd been (allegedly) abused, etc. They have no avenues left, with regard to that.

    The recent changes to the law, regarding the statute of limitations, however, have enabled them to pursue their claims against the companies, via some loop hole. In my opinion, they don't have a snow ball's chance in hell of proving that anyone in the companies of MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures, is liable for their (alleged) abuse. Safechuck, in particular, was never employed by either of the companies.

    Great info in the below tweet about how and why


    Justice for The Falsely Accused
    @JuliaBerkowitz1
    So let me explain what exactly changed in the California Code of Civil Procedure that enabled Wade Robson and James Safechuck to save their cases from being dismissed and what this means for the future.

    Michael Jackson Estate Inks BMI Deal

    by TV News Desk Jan. 21, 2020

    BMI (Broadcast Music Inc.) and The Estate of Michael Jackson announced today that they have inked a renewal agreement for BMI to continue to represent the performing rights in Michael Jackson's songwriting catalog. This new deal continues an uninterrupted 41-year long relationship between the King of Pop and the performance rights organization which began in 1979 when Michael Jackson first signed with BMI. The Estate and BMI last renewed the deal in 2014.

    "Michael first signed with BMI in the nascent stage of his solo career and BMI has never wavered in its commitment to his extraordinary talent. This is a significant agreement, commensurate with the robust growth of interest in his music and his enduring contribution to the culture," said John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson.

    "The influence of Michael Jackson's revolutionary music is undeniable," said Mike O'Neill, President & CEO, BMI. "We are extremely pleased that his estate continues to entrust BMI to represent his extraordinary catalog."

    Michael Jackson's remarkable career scaled unparalleled musical, commercial and critical heights. As a songwriter, he penned more than 150 songs, with more than 20 reaching multi-million performance status. Michael's compositions include some of the most iconic songs of all time: We Are the World; Billie Jean; Smooth Criminal; Wanna Be Startin' Somethin; They Don't Care About Us; Earth Song; Black or White; Bad; Love Never Felt So Good; Can You Feel It; Heal the World and more.

    To illustrate the strength of Jackson's vast repertoire, 17 of his songs have exceeded over one million plays on radio, with some exceeding five million spins. In total, these 17 songs alone have surpassed 30 million radio plays, an outstanding feat by any measure.

    Michael's music continues to thrill fans and inspire artists all over the world. At the end of last year, Michael's albums held spots on ten of Billboard's year end charts and on-demand streams of his music increased by 23%, outpacing the industry at large. With over 6.5 billion streams, he remains one of the most popular artists of all time.
