Logic 9 Apple Loops And Production Music

    Can someone please explain to me if it is legal to use Apple loops found in Logic 9 on Production music CDs. ie music that networks use on TV radio etc

    Particularly the vocal melodies which logic 9 has?

    If the answer is yes. Then Im presuming it works like any plugin software you buy in which you must have 2 or 3 other instruments running at the same time.

    I have emailed Apple copyrights
    but they never get back to you

    Im aware that Apple loops can be used for media. But are there restrictions on the level of Broadcast media?

    Thanks for your help

    This is taken from Apple's Logic Studio EULA:

    I have used Apple Loops in commercial production music. Using easily identifiable vocal samples is OK, but will probably have limited appeal as I imagine they've been done to death by now.

    It's right to be careful. Other libraries sometimes insist on a credit, and the company I work for have actually had to settle expensive actions due to oversights regarding such clauses.

    I just purchased the 50% off Kontakt 5 (enfin), and noticed in their EULA that, for the included Vienna Symphonic Orchestral samples, you DO NOT have to acknowledge the Vienna heritage for TV, but DO have to acknowledge for Music CDs, etc.

    Confused yet?

    Possibly because very often on a TV production there is no space in the credits for such things. hard enough getting a credit for composing the thing in the fist place.
