"Pants on the Ground" singing sensation Larry Platt wants to earn some money from the song he popularized through "American Idol" audition. The 62-year-old man hires lawyer to get credit for the song because he hasn't registered it to the U.S. Copyright Office, according to TMZ.

Due to the massive popularity of the self-penned track, Ruben Studdard is interested to re-record it with Larry. "He should come to Birmingham, Alabama, and get in the studio," Ruben says. "I'll put him on, we'll make a record, call it 'Pants on the Flo!' That song is gonna be a hit! I can't wait to get my first copy!"

"Pants on the Ground" does not only catch Ruben's attention but also other celebrities. Randy Jackson got up from his judge seat, singing and dancing with Larry at the end of the Atlanta audition. Simon Cowell, meanwhile, had "a horrible feeling that song could be a hit."

More and more American people are infected by Larry's song as his audition footage hit the YouTube and garnered thousand views. From the video-sharing website, it was brought to the locker room by Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre and invaded the small screen once again as Jimmy Fallon covered it on his show, and the ladies from "The View" invited Larry to perform it on their talk show.

Among those remixes, Larry said he loves Brett's rendition and would love to get the NFL player as his collaborator on its studio version.

Copyright protection is automatic. However in order for Mr. Platt to recover legal fees; and he will have many, the song should first be registered before going to court. Anyone trying not to pay Mr. Platt has already lost.

U.S. Copyright protection begins at the moment a new intellectual work is created. Mr. Platt doesn't have to "register" for his song 'pants on the ground' to be protected. It is already protected, and he can sue anyone who uses his content for anything other than what's called a "fair use."
