While it seems "Happy Birthday" may not be copyright after all, sadly, it seems even PD derivations ain't what it used to be
So how does a PD derivation come to be based on a non-PD song? I guess this would happen when there was a longer duration for the source than the derived song.
and copyright is highly jurisdictional (typically by country) , which only adds to the mess in the age of internet publishing.
