Music Muffled in Star Wars Galaxies

According to Wired, music is muffled in Star Wars Galaxies due to LucasArts concerns over players potentially violating copyrights:

Players can play Wookiees or bounty hunters and even musicians -- like those in the cantina band from the original Star Wars.

But musicians are not permitted to actually make music -- except a handful of canned tunes -- because of copyright violation fears.

Seems like it's an area the ringtone barons should get into. $2 to play a 30 second clip of some polyphonic Star Wars themed music.
