The music for Forbidden Planet was made in accordance with US Patent No. 2,024,900, issued Dec. 17, 1935, and its progeny. Norbert Wiener was one of the inventors. Copies of the patent can be obtained from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. For those of you who don't know, Norbert Wiener was a child prodigy, professor of MIT from 1919 until his death in 1964, author of several seminal books and the science of cybernetics, and the winner of the National Medal of Science. Among his works are CYBERNETICS, THE HUMAN USE OF HUMAN BEINGS, I AM A MATHEMATICIAN, and GOD AND GOLEM, INC. Enjoy this music, and if you wish to learn more, you can read my article "Norbert Wiener's Patent," at "The Law Works" (now "Intellectual Property Today") August 1995.
