Music in general is reverse engineered and derived from so heavily that licensing is irrelevant. Having the source to a few projects by professional audio engineers would be another story though.
Anyway, In this case the music is garbage and priced accordingly.
Really, research and technology should be open, but regulated and funded by the government directly (like the military). With corporate shit; it always ends up falling into the pattern of moving two steps forward and one step back. The technology ends up getting paced to maximize profits.
