The Mexico Deposition 1993 and "Dangerous" deposition 1994
Michael Jackson talking about creating music.
The deposition was recorded in November 1993, between his Mexico concerts during Dangerous tour, reportedly after he underwent a dental surgery with a wisdom tooth.
The reason for the deposition was a copyright infringement suit he had to face along with Lionel Richie, Quincy Jones, Rod Temperton and Joseph Jackson. The lawsuit came after three songwriters alleged that the pop star and his fellow defendants had plagiarised the hits “The Girl Is Mine”, “Thriller” and “We Are the World”. Following the testimony, a nine-member jury found the defendants innocent of plagiarism. Immediately after that Michael went to a rehabilitation center in Britain.
