Good Morning to You

Just go straight to this Techdirt article. It’s about a recent lawsuit filed against Warner Music, who has for decades been claiming copyright (and aggressively enforcing said claim) for “Happy Birthday to You” of all things.

Turns out, “Happy Birthday to You” is almost certainly in the public domain.

If this goes to court, and I sure hope it will, it will be the largest case of copyright fraud ever prosecuted.
