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.
