The song Happy Birthday to You became popular
Famous birthday song Happy Birthday to You became popular. The Tribunal of Los Angeles released from the composition copyright, making it public domain.

The Tribunal of Los Angeles resolved the issue with the copyright on the well-known song Happy Birthday to You, which is traditionally performed on the occasion of the anniversary. The American firm Warner/Chappell Music sought from the authorities the recognition of the composition of their intellectual property. Not to mention the fact that, the record company claimed that they owned not only music, but also glorified the word of the composition.

After long proceedings before the United States decided that Warner/Chappell Music after absorption Clayton F. Summy Co., which owned the rights to a legendary song, is actually considered to be the owner of the song Happy Birthday to You, but not all its variations, as only one arrangement. Not to mention the fact that the American authorities felt that the words of the song are performed by people around the world can't belong to one person, informs The Los Angeles Times.

In this regard, the Tribunal of Los Angeles decided to make the song available to the public, passing people. It is likely that this will be a landmark decision, which may then be followed a number of claims, as the firm Warner/Chappell Music, regarded as the owner of the rights to the song received almost 2 million dollars a year, demanding royalties every time someone used the song in film, advertising or any other public product.

Remember that song that has long become a favorite among folk was invented in 1893. The authors of the famous tunes are sisters Mildred and Patty hill, who composed the song, had sold the rights to the melody and the arrangement on the piano of the company Summy Co.
