Apple Soundtrack Demo Songs licencing?

Hi - I would like to use some of the full demo songs / samples from Apple's Soundtrack in my film. What kind of licence is attached to them? (If any)
Thanks

Ari,

just curious if you have found an answer to your question by now. When I first read it a few days ago, my first response was: "sure, all the Apple Loops are royalty-free". But since then I have been unable to find evidence that this is correct.

I assume you are talking about the songs in the "Jingles" folder that ship with Soundtrack Pro?

Hi Martin -
Same here, I assumed it, but have been cautioned not to "assume" anything ;) - the best I've found so far is a friend mentioned that "there's some info somewhere on the apple homepage about that" - but I have yet to find it.

Of course, that's where I should have looked for it. Thanks, Dave!
