Questioning the Copyright Status of Happy Birthday

This article raises serious questions over whether the song "Happy Birthday" is actually still covered by copyright -- despite the fact that Warner Music apparently receives millions of dollars every year in royalties. It is also interesting to note that the lyrics of "Happy birthday to you" is actually a filk of the original lyrics, "Good morning to all."
