I swear I recall reading somewhere long ago that a sound
recording of a thunderstorm or waves crashing on a beach
was not copyrightable because there was no human expression

Other sounds from people and such might get covered,
but I thought there had to be some level of human
"expression" to be copyrightable.

Take the Courage Vow
Pass it on.
