From the HY EULA:

Loops (continuous repeating compositions that contain only a combination of modified Samples) must be used in a musical context with at least two other instruments or loops that contribute significantly to the composition. The Loop may be an element, but not the entire composition.

The loop(s) however, can be identifiable. As in you can pick out a loop from xyz sample lib co. That does not get one into trouble.

It can be troublesome if a content id system id's a cue incorrectly, but if there are other unique musical elements in unison with the loop, that should, in theory anyway, not be an issue.

Cheers.
As far as the sample lib co is concerned? Sure. But what about the corporation/music library/some other client who pays a bunch of money for an exclusive track, only to find that the amazing groove or hook element is identical to that in another track(s)?

I use samples every day, I just do my best to make them unidentifiable.
