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 settlement was announced on Tuesday in a Los Angeles federal courthouse right before a trial on damages was scheduled to begin.

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.

Mann is the CEO of Vintage Pop Media, which according to settlement terms announced in court, is responsible for paying the judgment.

A judge had already ruled that Mann and Vintage Pop Media violated copyrights by using images from the Jackson film This Is It and other works.
