Reason's centralized plugin approach is a unique advantage that should let the Props solve this issue in a way that no other DAW can, making Reason even more attractive. (And I should add, I *am* willing to chuck $5 or so at them every time I want to collab on a track with someone who has RE's I don't.)

If they can make it so that "rented" RE's are locked into specific songs that could help detract people from gaming the system. Maybe some kind of centralized collab system? That seems suspiciously like something they would be working on as we speak...
How would you think the system could possibly be "gamed" in the rental scenario? If you've 'rented' OR trailed the RE, you have the right to use it in any songs you like - why lock it?

Great ideas, BTW. :-)
