Happy birthday to you

The song "happy birthday to you" or simply "happy birthday" is the most recognized song in the English language. Most people don't know that the song is actually copyrighted work, owned by Warner Music group, and every public performance of the song is technically illegal, unless royalties are paid.

For this reason, most restaurants or other public party venues will not allow their employees to perform the song in public, and many movies opt in for the public song "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" to avoid paying royalties.
If you are still wondering, yes, we are talking about the well known
"Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday to You .. "
song, that everybody has heard and sung at some birthday. Warner earns $2.000.000 every year in royalties, and actively enforces the copyright.

The copyright for the "Happy birthday to you" song will expire in 2016 in Europe and 2030 in US. Until then, avoid singing happy birthday in public places.

No, it is not an April fools joke.

Jingle bells lyrics:

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
