Yeah i'm not too sure about this but i'm pertty sure you can't copyright a conversation. Technically that is what all air traffic control communications are, conversations were both parties relay information. Sounds like they just don't want it on the net and don't have any other chance of pulling it.

I don't think that's right -- I would imagine a spoken conversation would have the same copyright status as any other sound recording.

My understanding is that copyight law has been used in the past to surpress embarrassing works. Clearly this is an abuse of the law, and needs to be stopped.

Not likely anybody will get anything removed from wikileaks. There have been plenty of attempts,,,,
