"They realize it's a mistake, they realize it's my song, they realize it's my production of his vocal in my studio and I am getting 50 percent of the whole project, actually, which is fair," said Anka yesterday.

Considering that sales of Jackson's music soared immediately following his death, we can safely assume that Anka will receive a nice payday from This Is It.
