Dear ASCAP ...

Carrie McLaren's letter to ASCAP about copyright clearance ...

Dear ASCAP,

The copyright status of 'Happy Birthday To You' and the law related to public performances of copyrighted works have recently been brought to my attention. I would therefore like to request permission in advance to sing 'Happy Birthday' to my father at Frenchy's Original Cafe in Clearwater, Florida, on October 8, at approximately 1 pm.

Unhappy Birthday: "Did you know Happy Birthday is copyrighted and the copyright is currently owned and actively enforced by Time Warner?"
