The Indian Trademark Office has issued a trademark for Yahoo’s signature Yodel. This is in contradistinction with the European trademark office’s decision that Tarzan’s yodel lacked distinctiveness.
Apparently Nokia’s phone ring is also to issue in India.
Israel does not have sound marks, but I don’t think there has been a ruling on the subject. I would not be surprised if the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks, Dr. Meir Noam were to rule that since copyright is available, there is no need to allow a trademark. That would be in line with his general position (which I reject) on double protection. There is also a technical problem regarding representation on paper, but the notes of a melody or jingle can, of course, be transposed without too much trouble.
