It's better to love than hate, but there are some things that we dislike. The website 24/7Wall Street researched companies using customer satisfaction polls, feedback from employees, and shareholder reports, and came up with their list - the most hated:
#1.) J.C. Penney.
#2.) Dish Network.
Rounding out the top 10 are Research In Motion, who make BlackBerry phones . . . American Airlines . . . Nokia . . . Sears . . . and Hewlett-Packard.
J.C. Penny - do we really all hate J.C. Penny?
It is probably the most recognizable song in the English language. The origins of "Happy Birthday" aren't quite known, but what is fact is that the song was copyrighted in 1935 and Time Warner now owns the rights to the song. So anytime it's played in a movie, etc. they have to be paid, and licensing that song is not cheap. It's one reason restaurants create their own Happy Birthday song, so they don't have to pay to sing to their customers.
So the Free Music Alliance believes it's time to create a new Happy Birthday song, one that can be used by any and everyone, as "Happy Birthday" remains under copyright until 2030.
