!! OMG, FINALLY! Now you can sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY without getting your ass sued !!

Ever wonder why you rarely see people sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY in film? Well — apparently it had to do with copyright infringement and clearances etc. Well, a federal judge ruled that Warner/Chappell Music doesn’t own copyright “Happy Birthday To You”. Warner/Chappell Music was making $2 million each year from royalties of the song, but the judge ruled that Warner/Chappell Music only owned rights to specific arrangements, not the song. This now means that people will no longer have to pay Warner/Chappell Music to license the song! Go to town, bitches!
