'Big Bang Theory' producers sued over "Soft kitty, warm kitty" lyrics

Edith Newlin's daughters sued CBS and other media-related companies Monday over the copyright to a song the lawsuit says has repeatedly been used on the sitcom.

3. Are they trying to say that they wrote this old English traditional song?

Interesting. That IS her name on it.
