    I am wondering if I chop up some mp3s (songs of artists) to make ringtones and mix and match then will the outcome be my own copyright to sell commercially?

    I'm pretty sure it's copyright infringement either way. They will especially nail you if you're trying to sell it, too.

    If this was the case, then making mix cd's and selling them wouldn't be illegal, but it is. Very illegal.
