Judge Unchains "Happy Birthday" Lyrics

A federal judge ruled the lyrics to “Happy Birthday to You” are not protected by copyright. Summy Co. never acquired the rights to the lyrics in 1935, so their successor, Warner/Chappell, doesn’t own a valid copyright to the lyrics, just the melody and piano arrangements based on the melody. http://gawker.com/federal-judge-unchains-happy-birthday-lyrics-1732480789 #tech
