Default Storm Drum 2 - Loop Usage (Licensation)

Hey guys,

I just came across THIS:

Music or Production Library Use

If you are a music or production library composer/producer using 'loops' (compositions that contain a combination of sound samples that can be repeated to form a continuous piece of music), the following terms apply -

Loops must be used in a musical context with at least two other instruments that contribute significantly to the composition.
The entire loop cannot be left exposed at any time in the composition.
If you have any doubts a composition meets this criteria, you may submit your track to licensing@eastwestsounds.com for written approval. (Please do not send audio or MP3 files, send us a link to your composition on your web server.)

NOTE: The exception to this restriction is 'multi-sampled instruments', where users play all of the notes (for example, a multi-sampled piano library).
...just wondering; would "Loop" also refer to all the Drones and other sound design stuff included in SD2, or just exclusively mean fragment snippets like from an instrument? From which length on a "sound" becomes a "loop"?

Yeah, I always questioned that myself...I have heard plenty of isolated SD1 loops in various reality shows.
