Michael Jackson’s Catalogue Of Music To Stay With Sony



Michael
Jackson’s recorded music will likely stay with Sony Music. Contrary to
reports today, no one connected with Michael Jackson has any idea of
talks to move Jackson’s records to Universal Music Group.
A source close to the action says of
Michael’s post-2004 unreleased catalog, “There is much music.” But how
much completed music is another issue. Jackson was arrested in 2003,
and endured two years of trial-related misery. It’s unknown if he was
writing very much at the time.
Moving from Sony would be a problem anyway. Jackson’s estate is
still a 50% owner of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. The estate has
representatives on the board of directors of that company. For better
or worse, Michael Jackson and Sony are a marriage with divorce a minor
possibility.
They are talking about his music right? Not THE catalog! I'm confused...

As far as I understand, MJ owns the rights to his own publishing under Mijac, which means he receives the money every time his songs are played on the radio, etc. Sony would still have the rights to the music he recorded while under contract with them. I could be wrong though.

This article might help explain some things about the catalog and MJ's own music catalog (Mijac Music) too:
