It's big bucks:
"According to David Sengstack, president of Summy-Birchard, "Happy
Birthday to You" brings in about $2 million in royalties annually, with
the proceeds split between Summy-Birchard and the Hill Foundation. (Both
Hill sisters died unmarried and childless, so the Hill Foundation's share
of the royalties have presumably been going to charity or to nephew
Archibald Hill ever since Patty Hill passed away in 1946.)"
