AT&T, ASCAP Settle Ring Tone License Fee Suit

Law360 (April 14, 2011, 4:21 PM EDT) -- AT&T Mobility LLC on Wednesday exited a New York suit brought by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Performers against a slew of cellphone companies over ring tone licensing fees.

The deal, outlined as part of a stipulation and dismissal order handed down by Judge Denise Cote in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, requires AT&T to pay license rates for its Mobility CV service ranging from 0.1375 percent to 2.5 percent depending on the type of audio content. For AT&T's Ringback Tone Service, the licensing rate will be 2 percent.

AT&T and ASCAP first...
