As soon as you create an individual work you automatically receive copyright protection. It doesn’t matter if its sound recordings, or a literacy piece as long as its a personal expression of an idea you are protected. This means you cant publish content created by another unless you have permission from the creator, the work is public domain or the work is under creative commons.
A creative commons licence can be obtained by anyone who wishes to allow others to legally share, reuse or remix their work.
