Tempest is talking with lawyers and it is up to him what he's going to do. At the moment, it's better to concentrate in following the situation at the page I posted before, and leave guessing this and that on forums. Of course good discussion is always ok.
The word has already spread to some German pages, no need to do translation. It has actually spread already so wide that it has got attention enough. Now it's time to consider what to do, and Tempest is the only one whose business that is.

P.S. Nice to see that you're still hanging around, Gargoyle! Come visit #modarchive sometime  :)

Would it be a good idea to try to get rid of the ringtone sold here?

you know, I've just checked both versions(nelly's and Tempest) myself using a remarkable song-edition software,  and I reached at the following conclusion: Too much coincidence.  
OK, there are variations from one song to another, but still the "melodic structure" is quite similar, as if one were a sang version of the other.

I guess if we all, human beings, were a bit more honest inside -not to show off- these kinds of situations would be prevented; just because of the fact that we would be trying to to be kind, to do the right thing concerning other people (not to rip a song composed by a perhaps-unknown author,for instance, in this particular case); ethics.

don't know, that's what I think. We'd all feel better.

Sadly, ethics are thrown aside in the profit-chasing world of the corporate music business. The end game is always money... would timbaland have sampled this track if he was making music for the love of it? possibly. Would he have got in contact with the original author and said 'hey, I wanna do something with your song, is that cool with you?' Well, if he was like most of us then.. hopefully...
Evidently, however, he came across this seemingly unknown track, thought it sounded cool... and didn't get in touch with the rightful author as he and his associates do not wanna share the profits.

There is also a Youtube version, in the above MP3 you have to look around the mid-way mark to find the part.
