Two British men have been arrested and charged with stealing Michael Jackson's entire music catalog. Wired estimates the collection is worth around $253 million. That's what Sony Music paid for the catalog following the King of Pop's death.

The two men allegedly hacked into Sony's internal music sharing system and stole the catalog, which also included a wealth of previously unreleased material.
