The oral argument in Bilski v. Kappos took place yesterday at the U.S. Supreme Court.  The Court has released the transcript of the oral argument but has not released the audio recording of the argument.  You can read the transcript here [Read]. 

According to the Court’s policy explained on its web site, the audio of the oral argument will not be available until after the end of the present Supreme Court term.

The Court also makes its own set of oral argument recordings. This set of recordings is kept in the Marshal’s Office for the remainder of the Term, during which time it is not available to the general public. At the beginning of the next Term, the recordings are transmitted from the Marshal to the Motion Picture, Sound, and Video Branch of the National Archives. The Archives’ collection contains audio recordings of Supreme Court oral arguments from 1955 through the immediately preceding October Term. Members of the public can listen to or make their own copies of oral argument recordings using their own tape recorders, blank tapes, and patch cords at the Motion Picture, Sound, and Video Branch. Copies of recordings can also be purchased from the Archives.
