RUSSIAN RINGTONES CAUSE COPYRIGHT CONUNDRUM

Pravda reports that the leader of the Russian rock group, Leningrad, had won his copyright case against a record company, SBA Music Publishers. The company sold the right to use adaptations of Leningrad’s music for mobile phones to mobile phone companies without the permission of the leader of the group, Sergei Shnurov. Although he failed to recover the $40,000 damages he was seeking, Shnurov is said to be happy with the result.

The IPKat wouldn’t be surprised if we see more copyright cases involving the lucrative area of mobile phone ringtones in the near future. He also asks that if anyone has access to a transcript of the case, could they please send it to theipkat@yahoo.co.uk.

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.
