Ah, good point. Non-exclusive makes a big difference.
I knew there was a reason I liked Magnatune.
That, plus groups like "Hands Upon Black Earth" rock.

The difference I can see, though, is that "Robot George"
in the proposed case is created by the Magnatune
organization, so derivatives can't be non-exclusive.

I'm not sure if Robot George can be licensed in a way
that is anywhere near as well as Magnatune works.

Hm, a bit of a quandary. And I'm stumped for solutions.
The requirements appear mutually exclusive.
