happy birthday copyright

We've all heard that every time someone sings "Happy Birthday" that the copyright holders should be getting paid. Via William Patry's blog, a link to a remarkable article and web site from Professor Robert Brauneis of George Washington Law School that present all the evidence he could find about the copyright status of the song.
