Happy Birthday no longer “owned”

Hey guys, I found this article (just baiting me to click it) pretty Interesting. It relates to “The Corporation” documentary we’re watching in class. If you remember in the documentary it states that “happy birthday” was owned and collected money to be used in movies. Well this article is about a judge in California blowing that out of the water saying that it cannot be owned! Check it out.

  1. Thanks for this update, Samantha. Unfortunately, the link doesn’t work. I’d you go back and edit the post, you’ll see an icon in the editing tool bar that looks like a chain link. Press that and you’ll be able to create the link.
