Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In the good old days, what passed through the aether was also temporary, so radio was comparable to voice. Nowadays everything on the air is recorded, so apparently any two-way wireless communication is a candidate for being a record.

That's a technological argument. So if there is a network of microphones that collect every spoken word, and cameras collecting every sign language contortion, and those are recorded, they become records. The only thing that keeps anything out of the record is a lack of adequate recording technology.

What other argument do you want, than technological? As what is physically possible changes, so must legal concepts.
