sing when you're winning

For those of you who still haven't watched Led Zeppelin on YouTube, you may already be too late. Warner's, who own the copyright on literally scads of pieces of music has withdrawn said scads after negotiations with Google over a content-sharing deal fell through.
Nothing too unusual there, except buried a few pars down in this story is the news - and it was news to me - that Warner's own the rights to `Happy Birthday.' So presumably you have to pay them every time you perform the song in front of an audience. Which, given the nature of the song, would probably be every time. That's the last time I sing `Happy Birthday' to anyone.
