"Happy Birthday" usage

Doom Video Vault

I Love YTtalk
There is a map that was made for me and for one short (15 seconds?) segment in there the Happy Birthday tune plays in MIDI form using piano, is ContentID gonna have a shitfit because of this?
God damnit, how can something so common be copyrighted? And to who? Probably some big publisher (Warner/Chappel, screw you!) who thinks they can throw their weight around for it. .__.

Believe it or not, I believe the happy birthday jingle is copyrighted.

Yeah, I've heard that too. I was watching a VLogger a few months ago who was at a birthday party and he was explaining he had to edit out people singing "Happy Birthday" when the cake came out because of possible copyright issues.
