The work to create a package with ringtones from around the world continues. The next stage is to identify and eliminate problems when creating such a package.

Write an answer for each potential problem and then try to solve the problem with a comment.

Every eliminated problem reduces the risk of failure.

All it takes is just one obstacle and all work is for nothing.

Licensing

The ringtones in the package need to be licensed. What licensing would fit the objectives of the project best?

I would suggest one of the licenses from Creative Commons.

Collection

The packager must be able to download each suggested ringtone somehow. How would this be possible?

Network storage could be a solution. A link would be enough for downloading.

30 sec. is enough.

Short tones - for messages, mail, etc.
Long tones - for calls, alarms, etc.

short < 3 sec < long < 30 sec

Taboos

Some sounds have built-in "taboos" in some part of the world. Spoken messages, screaming, cursing, Gunfire, marching boots, explosions.

"Problematic" sounds could be added to later collections.
