"Happy Birthday To You" Is Now A Public Domain Song

Judge George H. King of the United States District Court for the Central District of California has ruled that the Warner/Chappel Music claim of copyright ownership for "Happy Birthday To You" is invalid. In a 43 page decision filed September 22, 2015, it was ruled that the 1935 Clayton F. Summy Company copyright covered only the arrangement of the melody and not the lyrics. Public Domain Sheet Music reprints are now available for "Happy Birthday To You"
and the original "Good Morning to All"
children's song. More details to follow . . .
