Michael Jackson Song Hackers Apprehended

Posted Monday March 5, 2012 7:27 PM GMT

He passed away almost three years ago, and still people are freaking out over Michael Jackson's sublime music.

According to a report, two men from the UK have been arrested and charged with hacking into Sony Music’s archive where they illegally downloaded thousands of songs, including a bunch of Jacko’s tracks.

25-year-old James McCormick and 26-year-old James Marks were actually caught in May of 2011 and will be taken to court next January for their crimes.

In the hacking, McCormick and Marks nabbed over 50,000 songs, and given that Sony plunked down $250 million for Jackson’s catalog, it’s all thought to be compromised.
