"A federal judge has ruled that the music publishing company that has been collecting royalties for the song 'Happy Birthday To You' does not hold a valid copyright" to the song. It has the right only to certain arrangements, and not to the song itself. news I'm not sure who's getting the royalties check for 'Happy birthday to you/You live in the zoo/You look like a monkey/And you smell like one too,' ---but they might be rich.
Principle in the type: "Looking old ... should be a boast about experiences accrued and insights acquired, a triumphant signal that you are someone who, beneath that white hair, has a card catalog of valuable information." Frances McDormand
