Music sampling from portals

The music industry is not making enough money out of mobile phone tunes and ringtones says Qpass, a mobile phone software specialist. The ability for potential customsers to right-click and download a track sample from a web site (and use as a ring-tone) is under the spotlight with a claim that this is "potentially harmful". To businesses that can't cope with change maybe... but I don't personally see free sampling of 30 second clips as a threat to artists. Where they go, the labels will follow.
