What percentage of total music revenue is composed of ringtone sales?

Asked by andrew (16380points) September 5th, 2007

In light of the new Apple keynote, I remember that an insane amount of worldwide music revenue is from ringtones. Can anyone provide figures?

in 2005, ringtones pulled in $600 million source and the average annual music revenue for the united states is about 12 billion (wiki). So thats just 5 percent of the total music sales
