News Summary: Jury to decide on Jackson copyrights

THE CASE: Michael Jackson's estate is saying that a businessman working with the singer's mother should be forced to pay millions of dollars for infringing on several copyrights.

DEFENDANT: Howard Mann has collaborated with Katherine Jackson on several projects, including a book.

THE QUESTION: A judge has already ruled that Mann violated Jackson estate copyrights and ordered his website shut down. The amount is the sole issue at stake in a trial set to begin on Tuesday.
