[photogallerylink id=63081 align=left]Do you remember the tracks that Michael Jackson supposedly recorded in the 80s along with the late front man of ‘Queen‘ Freddie Mercury? Sony has confirmed a number of Jackson’s unreleased tracks were stolen.
Though they have not commented on which tracks or even how many were stolen, the BBC reports that along with songs featuring Freddie Mercury, there were tracks with ‘Black Eyed Peas’ singer will.i.am as well that might have been stolen. BBC News reports that Sony’s system was hacked last year around April, following the Playstation hacking scandal which compromised over 70 million people’s information.
James Marks, 26, and James McCormick, 25, both of the United Kingdom, were arrested last May and will stand trial next January in connection with the online hacking incident. They did appear in court to deny computer misuse and copyright offenses, notes the BBC.
Sony had reportedly spent $250 million in 2010 for the rights to the unreleased Jackson tracks following his death.
