Michael Jackson’s estate (MIJAC Music) has purchased the majority ownership of rights to Sly and the Family Stone’s music in the United States, according to Pitchfork. “Sly and the Family Stone were a force for enlightenment and positive change, a message that Michael believed in. He recognized [Sly Stone]’s genius and the power of his words and music which is why he first acquired the catalog and why we at MIJAC follow in Michael’s footsteps today,” the Jackson Estate co-executors reportedly said in a press release. The ownership of the rights to the catalog had previously been the subject of dispute. “Thank You Mijac (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin),” Sly Stone added, according to Pitchfork.
