You can be critical but you can also outright hate on someone. Saying they have a prosthetic nose is a vile thing to say, even worse when you try and back it up.

What was that tape/appliance Michael often wore on it? I don't know the full story on his nose but then it's just not THAT important to me.

It was tape to reduce swelling on the nose area. Done all the time for people who have had rhinoplasty on the nose, usually applied for anywhere up to a year after the surgery. That pic of MJ everyone uses as evidence of a fake nose [the red shirt court date] he must've just left it on. We know from the autopsy he slept with the tape over his nose.

Funny, he now pretends he was an MJ fan around Invincible checking fan boards for news.

He was allegedly on kop board as twisted vison.wrote all kinds of innuendo about mj to say the least .certainly didnt act like a fan! Thats why those who were around then just shake their heads at all the fakeness

As someone who got very close to mj many times that fake nose b.s is exactly that. wasnt it started by schaffel or one of his cronies during their lawsuit. S&#@ stiring pathetic tabloid national enquirer type b.s to get attention.

It's absolutely stunning to me, the guy claims to 'love' Michael now. Those of us who have been around for a while see through it.

How do I not remember him? I was on the KOP board too. Maybe we just never crossed paths or something.

He's still at it on Twitter claiming Michael destroyed his face, his fans are 'crazy' for suggesting otherwise and damaging MJs reputation and that the tip of Michael's was fake and a prosthetic, even claiming it was a different colour. The guy is an obnoxious dick and I can't stand him.

He makes Damien and co. look a lot worse because he is affiliated with them.

I completely agree and thank you for teaching younger fans about Charles Thomson.

F.U.C.K. Charles Thompson. He is a moron. Move on.

On the other hand Damien is a hero no matter what the corporate judges say.

Damien is not objective and puts his own twist on this case, as does Charles Thomson.
They are linked together and they reflect poorly on each other.

YES.

I saw that on Twitter.

How encouraged should we be at this point?

Honestly I wouldn't get your hopes up imo, the decision will most likely be the same as it was last time.

The Supreme Court already took the case?

The case isn't heard by the Supreme Court at all. The Supreme Court will review the appeal court's ruling. It will then transfer back the case to the Californian court. That's it.

It wouldn't surprise me if Shields & Co. don't understand this procedure, there's also nothing for any precedence because the law and thus consumer rights have not been undermined. It's Shields & Co. not understanding the ruling at all. For a precedence you need proof, there's none because there hasn't even been a trial. There was no ruling that would suddenly allow art forgery which is not legal in the US in general and also in California. Shields has been talking a lot of nonsense lately which only shows his lack of legal expertise, thus not being able to follow the developments of this case and providing severly wrong information to his readers.

Ok, we know it already. You love these fake songs and you believe they are Michael Jackson. It's not necessary to undermine this great achievement!

I mean, I'm gonna get flack for saying this but how is this a great achievement, all it is saying is that they'll consider it again, and most likely reach the same decision. Damien really needs to start understanding what's actually happening instead of hyping people up.

Faking Michael is an investigative podcast series detailing the 8-year quest for the truth about a collection of 12 allegedly-fake Michael Jackson songs. The songs, known as the Cascio tracks, were sold to Sony by Jackson’s longtime friend, music producer Eddie Cascio, and his collaborative partner, James Porte, in mid 2010 — a year after the singer’s sudden death. Upon hearing them, members of the Jackson family, a number of producers who worked with Michael throughout his career, and thousands of fans around the world accused Cascio and Porte of fraud, insisting that the songs were fakes — sung not by Jackson, but by an impersonator. Undeterred by the controversy, Jackson’s estate and record label insisted the vocals were authentic, officially attributing the Cascio tracks to the King of Pop when three of them were released by Epic Records on the Michael album in December 2010. But strong doubts regarding the authenticity of the tracks remain.

"Whether or not these are Michael Jacksons vocals is irrelevant, if its non-commercial speak we win, its over" - Michael Jackson Estate Lawyer. This is such a disgrace and its unbelievable this is allowed to go on so many levels. Absolute madness.

Sony wins Fake Michael Jackson Recording Claims for Second Time.

"For a second time, Sony Music beat claims in California state court that it deceived customers about whether some tracks on a posthumous Michael Jackson album were sung by Jackson.

The Court of Appeal of California affirmed Jan. 8 that Sony’s statements were still protected under state law following a relevant California Supreme Court opinion published after its initial ruling.

Vera Serova, the Michael Jackson Fan that took the Estate & Sony to court over the 3 fake songs [“Breaking News”, “Monster” & “Keep your Head Up”] has again lost her appeal to prove wrong doing from Sony Music in the promotion of the album “Michael” released in 2010.

Sony, the Estate of Michael J. Jackson, and MJJ Productions appealed from the superior court’s order partially denying their motion to strike under the anti-SLAPP statute. Plaintiff alleged that defendants marketed a posthumous Michael Jackson album in violation of the Unfair Competition Law (UCL) and the Consumers Legal Remedies Act (CLRA). Plaintiff also brought a fraud claim against the Cascio Defendants, alleging that they knowingly misrepresented to defendants that Jackson was the lead singer on the three tracks at issue.

Upon reconsideration in light of FilmOn.com Inc. v. Double Verify Inc. (2019) 7 Cal.5th 133, the Court of Appeal held that its prior opinion was correct. In the prior opinion, the court held that plaintiff’s claims against defendants arose from conduct furthering defendants’ right of free speech in connection with a public issue, and that plaintiff did not show a probability that her claims under the UCL and the CLRA would succeed because the claims concern noncommercial speech that is not actionable under those statutes.

The court largely adopted the prior opinion, except that it revised the discussion of the first step of the anti-SLAPP procedure to take into account the FilmOn decision and its application to the circumstances of this case. The court held that defendants’ challenged statements were sufficiently connected to an issue of public interest to warrant anti-SLAPP protection. In this case, the representations that plaintiff challenged did not simply promote sale of the album, but also stated a position on a disputed issue of public interest."

It’s not over yet. :)

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Our second petition for review is granted by the California Supreme Court.

Just for the record, I&#8217;m not one of the anti-estate people, but in this case they clearly made a huge mistake and they need to own up to it. While it may eventually turn out that it was legal what they did, it is in no way legitimate.

I'm not really anti-estate they just need to stop the things they do and do their jobs.
