Sound recordings are defined in the law as works that result from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken or other sounds.

Copyright in a sound recording protects the particular series of sounds "fixed" (embodied in a recording) against unauthorized reproduction and revision and unauthorized distribution of those sounds, and certain unauthorized performances by means of a digital audio transmission.
