I think terms of use need to be defined explicitly, and may be more
important to success than the technology.

Is the content going to be 100% public domain? Should use of recordings be
credited in subsequent pieces?

I probably wouldn't be happy using a Creative Commons approach as it's
potentially too restrictive. Although I suppose at the other extreme
someone could raid the library and start selling the content - which would
not be a good a thing.

Obscurity may well be the best defence here. ;-)

Sonus doesn't have problems with these kinds of issues, does it? What
licensing model, if any, does it use?
