Los Angeles - Michael Jackson's estate and a businessman working with the singer's mother have settled a copyright infringement case for $2.5m.

The estate had sued Howard Mann and his businesses in January 2011, claiming he had violated Jackson copyrights in a book and other merchandise he sold in collaboration with Katherine Jackson.
