The latest bad idea from the RIAA: "ringle" to combine CD singles, ringtones

There's a place where good ideas go to die; unfortunately, the RIAA has just visited the facility and come back with the "ringle," whose name should tell you all you need to know about its chances of success...

Now, none of this ringtone foolishness would even exist if users could more easily create their own ringtones from music they have legally purchased. That's the EFF's position, and the group has just issued a call to arms against the cell phone and music industries for locking down ringtones.
