MJ Tribute Band -- The Battle Over Neverland

MJ Tribute Band -- The Battle Over Neverland
Posted Mar 9th 2010 12:04AM by TMZ Staff

The Michael Jackson estate just laid the smack down on a bunch of Michael Jackson wannabes -- all over access to Neverland.

The wannabes are actually in a Michael Jackson tribute band named "Neverland" -- a name the MJ estate feels is a violation of its trademark.

Long story short -- the MJ estate wrote a scary legal letter demanding the band change its name ... and it did ... to Foreverland.

Here's the catch -- "Foreverland" still owns the rights to the domain name neverlandsf.com -- and its willing to give it back to Camp Jacko ... for a cool $30,000.

In short, the Jackson estate told the band to "beat it" -- and gave them until February 2011 to begin forwarding all web traffic to the new foreverlandsf.com ... or else.

The band tells us they're currently going over their options.

GOOD GRIEF, I CAN'T BELIEVE I JUST READ THIS!

The scary thing is, I'm not sure if I should be more worried about my own part in this (by reading this "article") or more appalled at the mockery/increasing disintegrating state of good 'journalism' that exists today...There really is a co-relation there; it's a cycle   :cry:

Good luck to both you & I in preserving our sanity (& conscience) here!


L.O.V.E & LOVE ALL THE WAY!

Good post  - hope this is also relevant -link - http://http://www.examiner.com/x-13006-SF-Events-Examiner~y2009m7d7-Neverland-A-Tribute-to-the-King-of-Pop-at-Slims-on-Saturday

I just had a look and I found this -  the article was put on there on the 7th july, and the Tribute  on the 11th at Slims - 333 11th street & doors open at 9pm - nubers again - 7 , 333 , 11,& 9 even though thats probably a normal opening time its just number relevant - maybe! When I downloaded this pic it says Slims(7)jpg!!!

Consciousness expresses itself through creation.
Dancers come and go in a twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on.
I\'ve felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists.
I become the stars and the moon.
The creator and creation merge into one wholeness of joy.

I find the "Michael Jackson wannabes" quite interesting choice of words. It seems like a shout out to all the fakes out there.
