Abstract

The aim of this article is to analyse copyright issues arising from the use of musical works as cell phone ringtones in the Tanzanian music industry. The point of departure for discussion is the Copyright and Neighbouring Rights Act, Cap 218 R. E 2002. The author argues that business practice does not correspond to the provisions of this Act in the context of cell phone ringtones. As a result, Tanzanian artists and the government lose revenue.
