Paul Anka Getting 50% of MJ Song Proceeds!

When Paul Anka heard the newly released Michael Jackson song "This Is It" he immediately knew that it was identical to a song that he and Jackson wrote in 1983 titled "I Never Heard." At the time the song was never released but Jackson had taken a tape of the song. Anka was not given writers credit upon the release of the retitled song, but Michael Jackson's estate has agreed that he is due 50% of the publishing writes since Anka and Jackson wrote the song together. The New York Daily News reports that this has to be the one of the fastest made deals in show business history.
