Ringtones are Phonorecords

Please note the date of the article linked to in the previous post below. The Copyright Office has decided that compositions used for ringtones may be subject to a compulsory license. RIAA rejoices. Publishers call their lawyers. Commentary from Prof. Patry. As Prof. Patry notes, the Register's rejection of Mirage Editions, Inc. v. Albuquerque A.R.T. Co., 856 F.2d 1341 (9th Cir. 1988) could have implications well beyond ringtones.
