A question about the End User License Agreement...?
 
What exactly is meant by 1.d. and 1.e. of the End User License Agreement?
Here's a link to what I'm nervous about:
https://www.propellerheads.se/agreements/#eula
Does this mean the songs I've made with Reason will only be my intellectual property (to hopefully distribute for money) if I go and record them with instruments (so that I'm not using Propellerhead's sounds)? Or is this only covering the sample song that came with Reason? Or does this mean something else besides those two possibilities?

For reference, 1.d. and 1.e. of the End User License Agreement read as follows:
(1.d.)
"The sound samples and musical examples connected to the Software may NOT be reformatted, mixed, filtered, re-synthesized, or otherwise edited or altered for use in any kind of commercial sampling product/package or software- this is strictly prohibited without the express written consent of Propellerhead Software."
(1.e.)
"The musical examples connected to the Software may NOT be used in any commercial music production- this is strictly prohibited without the express written consent of Propellerhead Software."

If possible, provide me with some sort of source so that I can be certain. Thank you.

1.d. "...for use in any kind of commercial sampling product/package or software..."

That means, you are not allowed to use Reason sounds in your own audio software or sample library (if you make one and try to sell it). That is, you're not allowed to resell any portion of the factory sound bank.

1.e "..The musical examples connected to the Software..."

That means you're not allowed to sell and make money off the demo songs and tutorials that came with Reason.

What he said, this is true for about all sample libraries, you're never allowed to resell the plain samples or the demo songs. Original work based on them is another topic and definitely allowed.

Thank you, Guys. That's a big relief. :)
