OK, this one is confusing:

IANAL, but if I'm reading this license correctly then these IR's are useless for music. It sounds like any data processed using it (i.e. reverb using this hall's IR) then becomes the property of TKK. Gah!
What exactly is "commercial use" of a reverb? I'd have to think that'd mean commercial redistribution of the IR's, including them in commercial products, not using them in a song or production, no?
I mean, that'd be like Alesis or Roland claiming to own the copyright of anything played on or through their DSP gear, wouldn't it?
