* ''LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai'' has them singing "Happy Birthday to You" to Kobato... with the English lyrics.

* The original Japanese version of ''LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai'' has them the Neighbors Club singing "Happy the traditional Happy Birthday song to You" to Kobato... with the Kobato before she blows out her candles. The English lyrics.dub, however, has them sing an original song which is very bizarre indeed:
-->''"It's a nice day for a birthmas,''
-->''Happy birthmas for you."''
-->''"Who was born today?''
-->''It was: Kobato/Kodaka's sister!"''
-->''Happy birthmas to you!"''

* In the original Japanese versions of VideoGame/PokemonOmegaRubyAndAlphaSapphire and VideoGame/PokemonOmegaRubyAndAlphaSapphire and VideoGame/PokemonXandY, the Happy Birthday song plays in the background during the first time the player enters a Pokémon Center on their birthday, and a celesta version of the usual Pokémon Center plays during subsequent visits on that day. However, in other languages, the aforementioned Pokémon Center theme is played instead of the birthday song during the first visit.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' involves Beast Boy's birthday. Robin keeps on breaking the forth wall about how the characters can't afford the normal "Happy Birthday" song. However due to the AnimationLeadTime the episode came out after the copyrights expired.

However due to the AnimationLeadTime the episode came out after the copyrights expired. A later episode would have the characters singing the song three times in a row without raising any issue about the rights.

That all changed in TheNewTens. In 2013, a lawsuit was filed against Warner/Chappell Music by Jennifer Nelson, whose production company, Good Morning to You Productions, was filming a documentary about the song and its history. To secure the rights to the song and ensure the documentary would be made, Nelson had to pay $1500, which she claimed was unreasonable. During pretrial hearings in 2015 – one day before a scheduled ruling, in fact – Nelson and her lawyers discovered evidence that WMG's copyright claim was likely invalid thanks to the discovery of documents "[[BlatantLies mistakenly held from them]]" by WMG, including a book published in 1922 titled ''The Everyday Song Book''. That book contained the lyrics to "Happy Birthday" with a disclaimer that they had been used with "special permission through courtesy of the Clayton F Summy Co."[[note]] (that's the company whose IP Warner Music Group ended up with in 1988)[[/note]] …but that's not a valid copyright notice, which was required at the time of publishing. [[note]] ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'' had a similar issue; it was distributed to cinemas without a copyright notice, thus accidentally and automatically releasing it (and by extension pretty much all of the core zombie/undead mythos) into the public domain. That loophole and several others were closed in the 1976 Copyright Act, but the law isn't retroactive. Plus, when it comes to lawsuits over old intellectual properties, American judges look at what the law ''used'' to be during the time period in question, rather than what it is now.[[/note]]
