Polish Song origin?
I don't see in the citation where it is a "Polish Song." The citation only says it was English song adapted from somewhere. Consider deleting this line unless you could actually cite this. - hewhocaves 11/7/11.
- Fair enough...I've deleted it. I've seen it discussed on two other places as Polish Traditional, but nothing I can reference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 08:35, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
- Some time in the past two (or maybe more) I've had a discussion somewhere on Wikipedia somebody about this song. I remember that they pointed me to a Youtube link, where there was an old video with some images that were definitely Polish as the background to a song that sounded like Soft Kitty. According to my Polish wife, the words were the Soft Kitty song, or very close to it. I can't for the life of me find it though. --AussieLegend (talk) 12:51, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Now a legal case with CBS Big Bang Theory
The daughters of a teacher who wrote a poem about a "soft kitty" are suing CBS, the network behind The Big Bang Theory, for copyright violation. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35194737 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:09, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
- They may have a strong case - the only change made by the "writer" credited on the tv show is the simple reversal of "warm" and "soft" etc. making clear that he did not write the song to which he took credit, and the OOP copies of the original songbook appear to back the copyright claim. Not even as good a defense as presented in the Rum and Coca-Cola case. Collect (talk) 21:05, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
How many words is the original song? From the excerpt of the show linked in the news, it seems to be two verses. The reproducibility may have bearing on the copyrightability.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 09:00, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
