What a ringtone is according to copyright
A ringtone is a separate digital recording as defined by the copyright law. A ringtone is not a small set of instructions that says “play this tune from this point to that point “that refers back to your original parched music file.
When a certain model of a phone delivers a new copy of a song to the phone, It in turn incurs a royalty obligation to the artist, composer, lyricist and any other who own the rights to the songs. Unless the record companies have negotiated a special deal with the artist, those obligations do not vanish because they’re delivering only 30 seconds of the song instead of the full performance.
A ringtone is a copy of a protected work, and making that copy is only allowable as the copyright holder licenses it.

How ringtones are protected
Cell phone holders companies protect ringtones by paying royalty to songwriters and copyright holders.
Each delivery of a ringtone is delivery of a copyright song, and incurs the standard royalty for the copyright holder. While copyright holders are free to waive those fees if they choose, the compulsory license does not require them to do so.
