Legal/licensing question re: Maschine Expansions
I've been asked by a potential marketing client whether the contents of Maschine Expansions - particularly the already composed demo tracks - could be used once converted into WAV in a playlist on an app?
For example Faded Reels - Chill Jill as part of a Lo-fi playlist. Agreed that this sounds lazy, but they're obviously penny-pinching/unaware of music licensing issues and I could advise them to get a musician to jam with the content if necessary.
But even if they bought the Expansions I'm not sure they have the rights.
Native Instruments' legal terms with my bold below seem to be more about reissuing samples in sample packs or patches.
The usage of this Product (in particular samples, instruments and presets) for the creation of a sound library or as a sound library for any kind of synthesizer, virtual instrument, sample library, sample-based product or other musical instrument is strictly prohibited. Individual samples, sound sets or audio loops may not be distributed (commercially or otherwise) standalone. Furthermore these samples, sound sets or audio may not be repackaged in whole or in part as audio samples, sound libraries or sound effects.
Would the use of Maschine Expansions in an app playlist fall under 'repackaged'? That sounds more likely?
Thanks in advance!
