"Happy Birthday remains the most profitable song ever. Every year, it is the
song that earns the highest royalty rates, sent to Warner/Chappell Music (which
makes millions per year from "licensing" the song). However, as we've been
pointing out for years, the song is almost certainly in the public domain."

Share and enjoy,
