The song "Happy Birthday" can trace part of its origin with the melody of 1800s song called "Good Morning to All," but retains its copyright to this day, generating $2 million annually in licensing fees for Warner Music Group. A filmmaker is suing the company seeking to have the song put in the public domain. "It's a song created by the public, it belongs to the public, and it needs to go back to the public," says Mark Rifkin, a lawyer for filmmaker Jennifer Nelson, who filed the federal lawsuit.
