The estate of Michael Jackson are suing a memorabilia shop, Premier Props for auctioning tour photos of the singer - while incorrectly telling buyers one purchased, they would own the copyright for the images. Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.

The photos that are the subject of the litigation were taken during the Jackson brothers' 1984 Victory tour. According to court documents, Jackson hired a photographer to take pictures of the concerts and it is the company that owned all the rights to the pictures.

The estate of Mr Jackson claim Premiere Props put the photos up for auction and misled potential buyers into believing they would also own copyright on the images. This would make the pictures even more attractive to buyers as they would stand to make a fortune reprinting and selling the pictures.

The estate is suing for all of the profits from the auction and to prevent the company selling any more Michael Jackson memorabilia. Premiere Props valued the pictures at between $200 and $2,000 on their website.

The estate is also involved in another legal battle. Noval Williams Films have recently filed documents in Manhattan Supreme Court as a result of the Jacksons representatives attempt to block the sale and release of Michael Jackson: The Last Photo Shoot with a cease-and-desist order.

The estate claim the company do not have rights to use the photos and videos of Jackson's 2007 cover shoots for Ebony and L'Uomo Vogue taken behind the scenes. However, Noval Williams insisted in a previous lawsuit that they do have ownership of the rights and the legal action taken against them has hindered the sale of the documentary.

It has been said that the Jackson family were given the opportunity to purchase the rights to the video - but passed this up, resulting in the director buying the footage in May last year.
