LXer: Can Lawyers 'Overcome' The Bogus Copyright On 'We Shall Overcome' And Free It To The Public Domain?

Published at LXer:

Earlier this year, after a bit of a roller coaster ride of a legal fight over the copyright status of the song "Happy Birthday," the two key parties finally reached a settlement that declared the song in the public domain. While many news reports had earlier claimed that the judge in the case had done the same, that wasn't really true. The judge simply declared that Warner Chappell did not hold the copyright, leaving it an open question as to whether or not anyone else did -- and some quickly raised their hands to claim the copyright.
