Business briefs: Marley ringtones back on market 

Verizon Communications (VZ) resumed selling mobile phone ringtones based on the late reggae music star’s songs, despite objections from Marley’s estate to a licensing deal struck between the wireless carrier and recording company Universal Music Group.
