This song wasn’t always free to use (a public domain). At some point time, to use it officially, people had to pay $700 to Warner Music. In the early 1900s, it song more like a free-folk song, but then it was registered under copyright in 1935 by The Summy Company. Warner Chappell Music (founded in 1811) bought The Summy Company was bought. This way, they also got the rights to the Happy Birthday To You song. Based on that purchase, Warner Music gave notice that the song’s copyright will not expire until 2030, and people have pay to the company for public usages (that’s $700).
