IS THE NUMBER UP FOR RINGTONES?

The BBC reports that ringtones may be the next industry to be hit by piracy. The market for mobile phone ringtones was worth £1.8billion last year and is set to expand. Already many websites exist which offer the tuneful tones without the necessary copyright licences. Although some countries have agreements for the collection of royalties, many don’t. The fear is that piracy will nip this market in the bud.

The IPKat is contemplating a return to communicating via smoke signals.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
