Happy Brithday | February 9, 2016

For years, the owner of the rights to “Good Morning to You” has been demanding royalties to anyone who publicly performs “Happy Birthday”. The melody is the same, and historically rights are attached to note progression over song lyrics. A court has overturned that action and moved “Happy Birthday” into the public domain.

If you suddenly hear that birthday song on TV in the future, you’ll know why.
