Happy Birthday : Mike Mann’s .com is not in the public domain https://t.co/qF6mCv9Ri0

The popular song “Happy Birthday (to you)” has been the focus of copyright bickering for a while. If you sang it at parties during the past 27 years, you were supposedly infringing on that copyright. The good news: it’s now officially in the public domain , and Music publisher Warner/Chappell Music agreed to end its claim of ownership and refund $14 million dollars, ending the long-running dispute over royalty rights to the song. Meanwhile, domain investor Mike Mann who owns the domain HappyBirthday.com won’t let it go without a fair amount being paid. According to Mann’s domain selling outfit, DomainMarket , he wants $1,999,888 dollars for the domain. Whoah! That’s not even $2 million bucks, so if you’re a rich prince in an oil-rich country, that’s a real bargain for your very own “happy birthday.”
