Birthday Song’s Copyright Leads to a Lawsuit for the Ages
The song “Happy Birthday to You” is widely credited for being the most performed song in the world. But one of its latest venues may be the federal courthouse in Manhattan, where the only parties may be the litigants to a new legal battle.

The dispute stems from a lawsuit filed on Thursday by a filmmaker in New York who is seeking to have the court declare the popular ditty to be in the public domain, and to block a music company from claiming it owns the copyright to the song and charging licensing fees for its use.

is the ... oddest .. Superman adaptation I think I've seen.

It is also very, very long.

It would have benefitted from more displays of Henry Cavill's chest.

I appreciated that Amy Adams had curves that more closely resemble those of real life women than is common in Hollywood (idealized, still, of course, but we're getting there - and, with Jennifer Lawrence, does this signal a new aesthetic?)

Also, bizarrely, there were no previews. I don't know if this was a quirk of my particular theater or what.

Maybe I'll do a Lois & Clark rewatch.

...maybe just the first season.
