[rumori] Sampling the Wilson family

I've recently had a track put "on hold" (ie. "pocket vetoed") by mp3.com for unlicensed sampling. What I sampled was the famous Murry-Wilson-invades-the-studio-and-makes-the-Beach-Boys'-lives-hell studio session from hell outtake tape. Two questions:

1. How can a conversation be copyrighted?

2. How the hell am I supposed to get permission to use it?

Luckily, the folks over at garageband.com don't appear to pre-screen any song submissions, so you can take a listen for yourself at:


The track is entitled, "The Beating Goes On".
