Title: Can I legally use the song "Happy Birthday To You" in my production?

Last Reviewed: Jan 06, 2012

Q.  Can I use the song "Happy Birthday To You" (aka "Happy Birthday") in my production legally?

A.  Yes, the status of Happy Birthday as a public domain composition has been litigated successfully and the court found that the song is, in fact, now a public domain composition.  Hence, you may now use the composition and sound recordings of it in your productions legally.  We license multiple different versions of it here.  To see a list of available Happy Birthday songs available for immediate licensing, click here
