I question that copyright. It infringes upon the (now public domain) copyright of Good Morning to All and was published without notice of copyright under the 1909 U. S. copyright act. That would make the 1935 registration invalid, and the song within public domain.

Moreover we are playing the tune and not singing the words. The company continues to insist that one cannot sing the "Happy Birthday to You" lyrics for profit without paying royalties. The tune was plagerized from a number of songs of the day. We are also not for profit. All of our bases are covered.

:rofl: Edgar Bronfman Jr. and a 2030 copyright expiration!

I have no idea if the copyright is valid or not, and I think the fact that only the lyrics are (allegedly) protected by copyright is sufficient defense. The fact that TON isn't for-profit is no defense, however, because Youtube most definitely is for-profit. This is why any and all covers of copyright protected songs must be taken down if the copyright holder says so. It doesn't matter whether the person doing the cover is trying to make money (i.e., promoting his or her paid performances, recordings, etc.) or not. Youtube is making the money.

Now my ocarinas have finally arrived in the mail, I'll be practicing for a few of these. I think it's good to have a goal to aim for when practicing, and this seems perfect for that.

I'll aim to do most - if not all - TV challenges. :)

First: Happy (Belated) Birthday to TON! :D

I think there was no May challenge. Maybe because of the discussion >here< that started in April.

I don't know if this is the right place, but may I suggest "Doe A Deer" from The Sound of Music for the June challenge? It's simple, fun, and is a perfect fit on the 4-hole pendant's range. :D

I'm willing to make the tabs. :)
