Alan B INFO REQ: composer Happy Birthday? copyright? (13) RE: INFO REQ: composer Happy Birthday? copyright? 29 Mar 99

I heard that Paul McCartney acquired the copyright, about the time the Beatles wrote a song with a similar name. I belive Michale Jackson subsequently bought much of their material, and Happy Birthday also, so your may be right.

I think PM has re- aquired many of his original songs, but I don't know whether that included Happy Birthday. Made an interesting rumour, even if it was not true

All the best
