Rebuking a challenge by the Recording Industry Association of America, the DC District Court upheld a decision by the Copyright Royalty Board setting the ringtone "penny-rate" royalty rate at $0.24. The court also upheld a new late fee, 1.5%, for overdue royalty payments.
The Board's decision was "reasonable and reasonably explained."
