The cell phone industry may be dragged into a nasty squabble over royalties between broadcasters and music producers. Believe it or not, broadcasters are seeking a federal regulation requiring that all cell phones contain FM radio tuners, whether users want the tuners, or not. It's the broadcasters' way of hanging onto listeners who increasingly get their music via the Internet or by listening to MP3s. There are already some phones with FM tuners in them. It's not a bad idea. But making it mandatory, at the behest of the National Association of Broadcasters, seems a bit much.
