Happy Birthday No longer Copyrighted-Cheers!

While doing some research clearing sync rights I came across this trivial fact that people may not well know about. We all heard on the news you could not sing Happy Birthday in the restaurant, however; that has all changed as of 2015 and the song is now in public domain.

Warner/Chappell Music

“Among the songs in the company’s library are “Winter Wonderland” and formerly “Happy Birthday to You” until the copyright of the song was invalidated in 2015 and put in the public domain the next year.[7]
