iii. Users are NOT allowed to make money from the sale, license or other exploitation of any Content on the Service, including original Content that user has contributed unless the user is exploiting ONLY that Content that the user owns in its entirety.
About time! This is what kept many people from using it.

Yeah I don't realize what they were thinking originally. I had lots of stuff unfinished stuff on Allihoopa (mostly for my personal, easier access) and then someone pointed out the terms and I immediately deleted everything. Not that I really think anyone would profit from using my tunes, but still...

Yeah this is great. I would have been happy with just requiring credit attribution when hosting outside of Allihoopa. And not allowing the selling of unaltered works (similar to sample use and licensing).

I think they just wanted to remove all potential barriers in the beginning. And dealing with terms of service and the legal side of things isn't always so simple.

Compared to all the other collaboration services, Allihoopa in my eyes is the most successful because of the lack of so many barriers. No other site is as fun for me to browse and listen to music or as painless and easy to collaborate :thumbs_up:

Finally Ernst is admitting his original mistake on this system. His first concept of the trustworthiness of every music producer who might come into contact with Reason users' music was clearly pointed out as a mistake from day one and he has finally come to see the error of his ways, even if motivated by altruism and a utopian world. He severely underestimated the back thought of all musicians that it would be nice to make a hit and make some money, as unlikely as it may be. He should have participated more in the discussions from day one, and not dismissed people's concerns as coming from those who simply did not understand Ernst. Ernst is of course not admitting any mistake, just changing the policy to what everyone advised. This is a good step forward and will encourage musicians to use Allihoopa knowing the musical content of their work is better protected. It is a great system whereby one can compose and perform songs in fabulous Reason and put it right up there for collaboration, with single buttons for uploading and downloading from and into Reason, all set up for orchestrating and re-sequencing compositions immediately. This is an unbelievable concept that musicians will love. Congratulations. I will love seeing this take off. ( and it is a big step towards immediately sending multi-track works to each other).

I would like to see perhaps an Allihoopa blog post with a simplified sample contract (pdf) for giving non-exclusive permission to have your song or sample monetized. That is, I think it's great that Allihoopa changed their TOS, but showing people how the next step might look like would be beneficial. I know music rights are a minefield, but a little simple handholding would go a long way towards connecting smaller musical hobbyists together through their service.
