To be fair, AOL didn't copyright it-- the original "authors"* owned the cop= yright, which was eventually sold to Warner Bros. (I think). It's conglomer= atization that puts the property into the hands of AOL-Time-Warner. *not r= eally sure how changing one word and doubling a note in each line qualifies= as "authoring," but hey. Whatever. If that's legit, so is changing one mor= e word/note to make your own version of Happy Birthday, I suppose.
