Happy Birthday Copyright killed in Court

Ein Bundesrichter hat Warners Bullshit-Copyright auf den gemeinfreien Song „Happy Birthday“ für nichtig erklärt.

happySelbstverständlich werden die die Entscheidung anfechten, aber ich gehe davon aus, dass das so Bestand haben wird: Documentarian wipes out Warner’s $2M “Happy Birthday” copyright. Happy Birthday, everyone! 🎁🎂🎉

More than two years after a documentary filmmaker challenged the copyright to the simple lyrics of the song "Happy Birthday," a federal judge ruled Tuesday that the copyright is invalid. The result could undo Warner/Chappell's lucrative licensing business around the song, once estimated to be $2 million per year. The company is likely to appeal the ruling to the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
