Paying for Ring Tones

By Waldo Jaquith
You've seen the posts, and perhaps even asked the question yourself: "Where can I find DMB ring tones?" These short MIDI-style audio clips can be transferred onto mobile phones, so that your phone will ring the opening bars of "Satellite" or "Ants Marching" rather that the few rings that come with the phone by default. Sites like Zingy and provide these for free or a small fee, but that may change soon. 65% of ring tone companies aren't licensed to sell them, and now the record labels want a cut of the action. So if you're looking for ring tones, get them while you can. See News.Com's article for the full story.
