You Are Not Alone

Twelve years on from Michael Jackson's release of "You are not alone", a Brussels court has ruled that the song is mainly similar to a song written by Belgian twins the Van Passels two years earlier in 1993.

All the authorial rights of the Jackson hit, written by Robert Kelly, are switched to the brothers according to the court ruling.

However, the judgement is only applicable in Belgium and acquiring the royalties will be an uphill battle (most especially as it has taken the Van Passels 12 years to get this far).
