Audio samples of Live Packs - only useable with Live? (Mac)

Hi there,

I bought the Crystal Sounds Live pack and I wanted to open the audio samples with another software. That proved to be impossible, all apps that I tried were unable to do so, from Audacity to Logic to QuickTime to AudioFinder. Yet the samples are simple .aif format...

Is there some kind of access key that allows one to use the samples only with Live? Does anybody know? I copied the samples to another folder to be sure that I have access privileges.

    The audio files at the core of the Partner Instruments are copy protected according with the user's license and therefore can only be opened from within Live.

    How do I do this copy protection? It sounds good.
