The singer acquires publishing rights
Jackson, who also currently owns The Beatles copyright, has bought Famous Music LLC from Viacom.
In a statement Jackson said: “This is a milestone event for Sony/ATV Music Publishing. The diverse collection of songs in this catalogue range from timeless classics to contemporary hits, and I am pleased to add the acquisition of Famous Music to Sony/ ATV.”
Eminem famously parodied Jackson in his video for ’Without Me’, a massive worldwide hit in 2002.
