"In light of what is happening at the moment, smoothfm is not now playing any Michael Jackson songs".

The documentary has not yet been broadcast in Australia.

At the same time, NZME boss Dean Buchanan said; "Playlists change from week to week and right now Michael Jackson does not feature on them".

The Jackson estate has denied the allegations and have filed a $100m law suit against HBO for breaching a non-disparagement clause that appeared in an old contract.

"Ten years after his passing, there are still those out to profit from his enormous worldwide success and take advantage of his eccentricities", the suit claimed. The essential question is this: What do we do about Jackson's music moving forward?
