Paul Anka Slices Like an F'n' Hammer on Michael Jackson Copyright Infringement

But sick. Sorry for taking yesterday off, but I was sick, it was Columbus Day, and my pud's not going to slap itself.

Infringement: Michael Jackson and Paul Anka co-wrote a song 20 years ago. Jackson never recorded it, so Anka gave the song to another singer, who recorded it. And then Jackson retitled it and either he or his estate credited him solely with it on his posthumously-released album.

After making some legal threats, Jackson's estate has given Anka the proper co-credit and 50% of the royalties.

TMZ has cuts of both versions of the song, for comparison.

Thanks to JeffD. and a few other commenters.
