Is it illegal to sing happy birthday in public?

Asked by Sadie Ramsey

Movie producers and restaurant owners need to obtain a license to broadcast or publicly perform the “Happy Birthday to You” song. You are safe if you sing this song in your home, or even at your office, since neither setting would constitute a “public performance” for copyright purposes.
