In September 2015, a California judge ruled that none of the companies claiming ownership of Happy Birthday to You ever had any right to it at all.The world's most recognised song originally appeared as Good Morning to All, written by Patty and Mildred Hill in 1893.While that version has been in the public domain for decades, Warner/Chappell music has claimed ownership of the Happy Birthday version since 1988, when it bought the ditty as part of Birch Tree Group's holdings.That publication deal assigned Summy the copyright of all the songs in the book.The Summy Company later registered copyright in 1935 for an arrangement of the song with the same music and the now-familiar birthday-themed lyrics, crediting Preston Ware Orem and Mrs. R.R.Ever since 1935, the Birch Tree Group -- and later Warner -- insisted on royalty payments for all performances of the song for business purposes, from waiters serenading customers to musical greetings cards and TV and film use.

The Pacific island of Tokelau reigned supreme.In 2017, its superiority has yet to fade.The number of .tk websites may have dropped from 31 million to 18 million, but the four square miles of land in New Zealand still has more domain registrations than almost any other nation or territory in the world.Tokelau is barely visible on standard world maps, but here it becomes a huge area in the southern Pacific.China, the world's most populous nation, is now first on the list with more than 20 million registered domains on .cn, followed by Germany (16 million on .de), United Kingdom (10.6 million for .uk and .co.uk) and Tokelau (18 million for .tk).Guinea Bissau (.gw), with just two.
The net menace was the one-time world's biggest bot worming its way since 2008 through millions of machines across every country in the world, smashing through social networks including Facebook, Skype, and popular email services.It exploits a Windows vulnerability CVE-2008-4250 shuttered in a Microsoft critical update that year.Check Point says it registered the worm as the chief threat last month noting it was behind 17 percent of malware attacks.Their creation has remained in headlines since 2008 having infected a swath of cheap hard drives and USBs, and even police body-worn cameras in the United States.Check Point noted Conficker's dominance last December, and CERT UK recently said it found more than half a million infections in April .Its rootkit was thought to reside on more than a million machines and is still operating thanks to an incomplete command and control take down effort in 2013.

This guide is going to show you some of the ways to generate sales leads like never before through inbound marketing and more.Podcasting is getting huge, and through a well planned podcast, you can help promote your services on the Internet.For example, in an online discussion someone may talk about finding the best golf courses.It s not closing on 100 million registered users, with a significant portion of them posting at least once a month.A vacation rentals company will be able to use the color and beauty of their natural surroundings in their images, but accountancy firms and sellers of insurance may well struggle with the visuals.And that s where this guide can no longer help you.

The NHS Royal Free Trust said it plans to continue testing a kidney monitoring app developed by Google DeepMind, despite regulators moving in.The app, known as Streams, aims to help clinicians detect acute kidney injury AKI — a condition that kills more than 1,000 people a month.A Royal Free spokesman denied that trials with DeepMind had been suspended after TechCrunch reported the app was not currently being used."The UK s medicines and healthcare devices regulator, the MHRA, is in talks with Google DeepMind and the Royal Free about the app, according to TechCrunch."We have been in contact with Google since May 4 and are currently in discussions with them about whether or not their app needs to be registered as a device," a spokesman for the MHRA told TechCrunch.The Information Commissioners Office ICO is also investigating the partnership between the two organisations after receiving a small number of complaints from individuals.So far, the Royal Free has carried out three small "user tests" for the Streams app involving an unspecified number of patients.Each trial lasted between two and six days and involved up to six clinicians.DeepMind came under scrutiny after New Scientist revealed it had signed an extensive data-sharing agreement with the NHS Royal Free Trust to develop the Streams app.The agreement gives DeepMind access to 1.6 million medical records for patients across three London hospitals: Barnet, Chase Farm, and the Royal Free.Through the data-sharing agreement with the NHS, DeepMind will be able to see data that is unrelated to kidney function, including whether people are HIV-positive as well as details of drug overdoses and abortions.Privacy campaigners and healthcare professionals have questioned why DeepMind needs access to so much data to develop a relatively niche app.A board of healthcare experts and government tech leaders are due to scrutinise DeepMind's work with the NHS.
Scientific research has propelled humanity forward throughout the course of the modern era, and now, technology may have found a way to catalyze this progress even further with a new tool that allows researchers to recruit, engage, and retain their human participants.With the on-demand service industry already booming, a new secure online platform called Proofpilot is allowing study participants to browse research studies, contribute to research, earn rewards for completing study tasks, and learn about new prevention, wellness, and health optimization techniques.The proposed ProofPilot solution involves creating a blog post that serves as both the creation and deployment of a research study.Heralded as a method that employs the $100 billion serviceable market industry to address the $25 billion research industry, ProofPilot believes that its key to success lies in its ability to lower the barrier of entry to getting a study off the ground.Founded in 2013 by Matthew Amsden, ProofPilot hopes to address the fact that of the 25,000 registered clinical trials that take place per year, 97 percent fail to end on time.I became increasingly frustrated that insightful health and social innovations were getting lost because it was too expensive to test whether something really worked, said Amsden.
Graphic: SymantecA professional hacking group called Suckfly is targeting India's infrastructure and economic base by zeroing in on individuals and installing tools to access their work networks.Symantec also managed to uncover the group's attack method: they found an employee at each organization that had a significant online footprint and installed their malware on their system – Symantec reckons a phishing attack was the most likely approach.The malware then uses known security holes – in this case unpatched Windows flaws – to escalate privileges before posing as that individual to enter their work network.Several of the domains were registered through a Yandex email address, for example.The targeting of India's economic and governmental centers could benefit both foreign governments and those looking to make money from commercially sensitive material, so motive is also hard to divine.Symantec only uncovered the attacks two years after most of them had taken place and only then after it knew what to look for.
MS Flight 804 disappeared from radar last night in the Mediterranean Sea. The plane is registered symbol SU-GCC, and it was delivered to EgyptAir in November 2003.

By the end of April, the types of aircraft had flown more than 6,700 flights.
I'm ready to play cowboy againRockstar Games is "hard at work on future projects" to be "revealed soon" according to the latest financial reports from parent company Take-Two.The studio's last title was the hugely successful Grand Theft Auto 5 in 2013 and since then they've been working on PC, PS4 and Xbox One version of the title, in addition to producing new content for GTA Online.The financial report references Rockstar's future project in a section referring to the next financial year, which doesn't begin until 1st April 2017 and means Rockstar's next title probably won't be released until that period at the earliest.Of course, a small part of me says: what if this is the return of Agent?The game has been sat in development for several years, with the last trace of it being 2 trademarks registered in 2013.There's no word on whether or not Rockstar will appear at E3 next month, although they very rarely attend, but if they did it's likely they'd show up during Sony's press conference.
Pornhub's still burning through the April Fool's day joke ideas list it came up with earlier in the year, today releasing a thing it calls BangFit -- a concept for a sports activity tracker for people who want their weekly bit of sex to be augmented by the inclusion of a mobile phone to track their heated, directional thrusts.Here's the thing for the thing, which is actually all pretend:Pornhub is so proud of this joke it's even registered the BangFit domain name, where it describes the process as being "...the perfect excuse to watch porn along with your partner."Even though that's a terrible idea as it only leaves everyone with unrealistic expectations of positions, durations, acceptable finishing moves etc.Pornhub via Ubergizmo Want more updates from Gizmodo UK?Make sure to check out our @GizmodoUK Twitter feed, and our Facebook page.

Samsung Electronics Co. agreed with Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. s financial-services affiliate to cooperate on mobile payments, as the world s largest smartphone-maker looks to expand its presence in China, a market where it has struggled in recent years.In a statement, the companies said Samsung s mobile payment service, dubbed Samsung Pay, will work with Alibaba affiliate Ant Financial Services Group s Alipay, which has more than 450 million active registered users.For Samsung, which is touting Samsung Pay as a selling point for its premium devices, a tie-up with Alipay could give its service wider reach in a market it is desperate to restore its fortunes in.For Alibaba, working with the world s largest smartphone maker could help it expand overseas, a priority for the company.Last month, Alipay launched in Europe, and earlier this year, Alipay signed a deal with Uber Technologies Inc. to allow Chinese users to pay for rides with Alipay while traveling outside mainland China.While Alipay is mostly used for settling online transactions, it is increasingly being accepted by brick-and-mortar retailers and restaurants around China.
I was talking with some people recently about self-driving cars and how one day you'll be able to pull your phone out of your pocket and order a taxi, and it'll show up just like an Uber car, only without the driver in fact, Uber's working hard to ditch all of its human drivers .We adjust our habits or actions in light of both strangers' awareness and our own awareness of their awareness...even if we don't realize we're doing so.Of course, these future autonomous taxis will probably have more than a couple varieties of deterrents: perhaps a security camera that monitors everything you do, the threat of paying handsomely for any damage you're proven to have caused, and the public shame of being blacklisted from a particularly popular mode of transportation.Who cares about potentially paying damages if you're registered with a limited-funds prepaid credit card and under a fake name?If cartoonish printed eyes on a sign can deter littering, can a pair of life-like eyes somewhere inside an autonomous car keep bored or otherwise destructive people in check?Or, in a less draconian fashion, manufacturers may choose to distract their riders into peaceful obedience with on-board VR headsets and built-in movie projectors.
Samsung announced today that it has cemented a deal that will make Alipay, China s largest online payments platform, available through Samsung Pay.The partnership, made between Samsung Electronics and Ant Financial, the Alibaba financial tech affiliate that owns Alipay, is important because Alipay is one of the most formidable rivals mobile payments like Samsung Pay and Apple Pay face as they tackle the Chinese market.Alipay, which claims about 450 million active registered users, launched the Alipay Wallet smartphone app, which stores credit card and coupon information and can be used for offline payments, back in 2013.The deal hasn t been announced yet, but the popularity of iPhones in China—they still hold about a 14.6 percent market share, despite competition from Android rivals like Huawei and Xiaomi—means it would not be surprising if one was announced soon, too.In a press statement, Fan Zhiming, the president of Ant Financial s payment business unit, said the partnership will allow Alipay to expand its reach beyond e-commerce: Alipay covers the vast majority of online payment use cases.At the same time, it also developed a variety of offline use cases, including restaurants, supermarkets, convenience stores, taxis, hospitals, and public services.
Those readers with a tendency to wilt with rising temperatures are advised to steer clear of the Indian state of Rajasthan, where the mercury yesterday hit a blistering 51 C.The city of Phalodi broke India's previous record of 50.6 C, registered in 1956, during a heatwave which has seen the country's north and west suffer weeks of temperatures above 40 C. India's Meteorological Department warns things aren't expected to be any less infernal today, but forecasts some relief over the weekend and going into next week.The Indian definition of a "heatwave" is a maximum of 45 C, or "five degrees higher than the average for the area in previous years", as the BBC puts it.Blighty similarly uses the "five degrees" standard for declaring a heatwave, specifically the World Meteorological Organization's determination that it's "when the daily maximum temperature of more than five consecutive days exceeds the average maximum temperature by 5 C, the normal period being 1961-1990".The British press will, of course, trumpet a absolute sizzler if thermometers register anything over 25 C for a single weekend of unbroken sunshine.The papers must have exhausted an entire year's worth of phew scorcher headlines when the UK record high of 38.5 C was recorded on 10 August 2003 in Faversham, Kent.Back in India, relief from the heat is expected when the annual monsoon hits.
