actually you CAN use the Sony ACID royalty-free loops -- I went around 
with Mia on this and she checked out the Sony loops license.

It's fine, most music on ccMixter uses some for of this. Without the 
ability to use royalty-free loops the idea of using CC on music falls 
aparts and disables about 90% of all music in the world.
