    Happy Birthday to You!

    In 2014, I was a lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit we filed to liberate Happy Birthday back to the public domain. We won and Warner Chapell paid out $14 million, most of it going to artists who were forced to pay to use it in a recording. Unfortunately I only got $455 which is why I'm here asking you for money to continue my work. As a Liberator of Happy Birthday, I will sing you HBTY as a recording and send it to you along with a download code for the album and a set of our hand-crafted seeds.
