There are a bunch of different versions of the wilhelm scream. It is used in a ton of movies, does anyone know what the copy right status is?

I haven't been able to track down a definitive answer, but it is my understanding that it is treated as a public domain sound clip. As it has been used in somewhere between 150 and 200 films without a lawsuit I would assume that it is safe to use without infringement. Please, don't use it; it's become a much overused cliche.

There is a wealth of information - minus the rights info - on IMDB and other places as well as a few usage compilations on YouTube.
