Hopefully, the defense won't turn much of a profit. No jury member ever should, although we should be paying jurors, particularly in high profile cases, a good amount, enough to defray most financial hardship in order that fewer must be excluded. I don't mind the media making money if they are also providing accurate, fact based analysis and providing trial coverage people flock to see. Might but a book by Jeff Ashton or Yuri....
JB IMO, did a terrible job, put on a lousy defense. He was only successful because the jury couldn't see beyond their noses, IMO. I don't think too many intelligent defendants will want to put their lives in JB's hands. I for one would never choose him, unless he was the last lawyer left in the world. So as a consequence, I just don't see JB making nearly what he thought he would make on Caylee's death.
ICA, IMO will do much worse because people hate her, and I think a boycott is coming.
It won't affect them, they think she accidentally died (drowned?) like countless other children in this world. I think this Jury thought they were on Big Brother... be sequestered for a couple months, enjoy the perks that come alone with it, and then make a vote and go home and fatten up their wallets.

James A. Baldwin AMEN. We saw that on 7-5-11.
Rest In Peace, Caylee Marie Anthony. You are in a better place
Who cares? Money is indeed the root of all evil.
People magazine, Jerry Springer, Skyline Chili and others are saying that now - What will they say 30-60 days from now? Just saying.
She never allowed ICA to accept any responsibility for her actions. Because of her coddling of her insane daughter, she allowed ICA to "got away with murder".
She is a fricking liar just like her daughter. Where do we think Casey learned how to do it so well?
She is also a nag and a mean, vindictive woman who rages at everyone in her family. I wonder how many brawls little Caylee had to witness.
Mouthing "I love you" in the courtroom after all that ICA did to destroy this family..and after she threw her father under the bus? SICK!!!
I also can't stand Cindy. At first I felt sorry for Cindy, but once documents and audio interviews were released to the public I started to hate her. I think Cindy was a giant moron to allow Casey to get away with things. Casey stole money from Jesse Grund and Richard confronted Cindy about it and she brushed it off. Casey also stole checks and used Cindy's credit cards and Cindy didn't make Casey pay her back and she never question why her "employed" daughter had to steal money and credit cards.
Cindy also got Casey out of taking responsibility for theft she committed against Shirley and Alex which I think was really sad. Casey stole money from a nursing home account and I do wonder if Pleaseas income was very limited.
Cindy has a bad reputation with the neighbors. The Dickens couple that was interviewed by LE said that Kio Torres told them about Cindy being hateful and Bailey the husband said that Brian Burner told him that Cindy was never friendly to him or his wife. I think Cindy was nicknamed "Queen *****" of the neighborhood.
I honestly hope publishers or literary agents don't give Cindy the time of day. She is a known liar and out of her, George and Lee she seems to be the worst.
What in the world are they thinking?
Someone needs to tell THEM ifyou pick up your daughters abandoned car, havent seen Grand daughter for a mo, have flakey daughter and it smells like theres been a dead body in damn car, do not drive it home call police from towyard!!!!!
Its almost laughable them writing a book how to advise other people.
Mark Klaas is good. People I am sure if they need help could ask him for advie, too.
Bettydaviseyes: they need to change title since trial to: What to do if you find drowned Granddaughter.
Best NOT to make up huge story that snowballs out of control when you simply call 911 and admit you werent watching said child and now child is drowned, please send help?
Well, it all depends on what story they want to go with, The kidnapped by Nanny or the drowning story.
As much as you hate Cindy, do you think she would trade $ for the choice of having her granddaughter alive? Can you say the same for Casey? Think about it...

I agree his defense was lousy and had several holes. In his opening statements when he did the "reenactment of George finding Caylee in the pool" seemed really phony and you could tell there was tension in voice when he did that.
Also if JB wrote a book, I wonder how he would explain a few things such as
-Why would a former cop like George wanted to cover up a drowning?
-If Caylee didn't die in a drowning was Casey going to continue the charade of having a job and a nanny?
Her mother CA, IMO
They air it because we as the public want to see it, if no one was watching it wouldn't be on.
Not the same as making blood money off of the murder of their family member.
Well, if I look around here, I would say Nancy Grace and HLN have already made the most money.
As far as the family, IDK, guessing it would be KC. Heard someone offered 3 mil for a book. I just want to know what that company is thinking? Wonder if the OJ book made that much after cost? What is there to read? A teenage diatribe of how to kill your child? Really, what is there to hear from KC? Even if she told what happened to Caylee it would not be the truth, everyone knows that.
Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.
The sad thing is that as outraged as we are at the thought of anyone in the family making money, I bet the books will sell and the interviews will bring in the ratings.
As much as I want to hear what the jury foreman might have to say tonight on Greta, I will not watch just out of principle. Greta says no money has been paid but does that doesn't always mean that there wasn't money exchanged in other ways, like licensing fees paid.
I think Casey will make the most money, but all the lawsuits and other things will take a chunk out of that, of course.

Seems like she'll make some money in the beginning, but I'm not sure there's really that much to be made. She may get a few hundred thousand but she'll blow through that in no time.
Justice for GEORGE!
I say Baez, I think he thinks he is the leader of Ocean 11! ... or maybe Ocean 31!
