Ringtones (that are purchased legally through a carrier) already have royalties paid on them. These royalties are so the customer can download the song.. apparently they need a seperate royalty to use it as a ringtone? That makes no sense.

That's like buying a CD, but that you have to pay every time you play it just because someone might be stalking you and listening through the window.
