Michael Jackson Music Allegedly Stolen from Sony Music by Hackers

Two British men have been charged with illegally downloading Michael Jackson recordings from Sony Music's computers.

According to UK's The Guardian , more than 50 thousand music files, most of them connected to the King of Pop, were allegedly obtained by the hackers.

Twenty-six-year-old James Marks and 25-year-old James McCormick were arrested last year, though their alleged actions hadn't been revealed until this week. They will stand trial next January.

In 2010, Sony reached a 250-million-dollar recording deal with Michael's estate that granted it permission to sell previously-unreleased Michael Jackson music.

It’s unclear whether music by other Sony artists was compromised.
