Default ringtones. Legal usage?

I've found that my app can't access to default ringtones.

 

So, there is only one way to use it - include pack of default ringtones in main installation or download it from webserver at first start application.

 

Is it will be legal?

They are protected and not usable by 3rd-party apps.

As in literally, not legally. The Player class won't play them... I think.

Yes. Player can't play it from default location, because it hidden. But i may include OWN package with the same ringtones.

Re: Default ringtones. Legal usage?

You should not re-distribute the default BlackBerry ring tones within your own application.  If you wish to use the default ring tones you can integrate with the device profile.
