Beware When Using Sample Libraries
Sure - but that can happen with any Sample library - this thread is about Splice. There is *nothing* different about Splice, other than it's unique pricing/credit model - paying per sample vs. buying an entire library. Obviously if a sample is incorrectly licensed to a library there could be a problem. That can happen anywhere.

The problem I have is that Splice is being singled out, and specifically that the *risk* is being overstated, presumably because Etch and others are equating the "Community" feature of Splice to the Sounds feature - thinking *random* loop creators can upload and distribute samples to Splice Sounds with dubious origins. That is simply not the case.

The risk you take in using Splice is the same risk you take in using any other "traditional" sample library/sample cd/etc. Nothing here is different.
