Quoting "S. Christian Collins" <address@hidden>:

Here's the response I got from E-MU regarding the matter:
You are free to use the Creative and E-MU sounds/samples in any music works that you create and sell. What you can not do is sell or distribute any Creative and/or E-MU sounds/samples. Regardless of the preset or programing of how the sample/sound has been modified, if it is a raw sound/sample that was created or distributed by Creative or E-MU, you can not sell it or distribute it. Creative and E-MU do spot check audits from time to time to identify proprietary sounds/sample from those who sell such product.
Hmmm... I might not be able to release GeneralUser GS under an open
license in this case, and I really don't have the time to go through
and recreate the affected instruments.


Seems like it would have been nice if that was more prominently stated with their products, so you would have had a better chance of catching it before hand. Roughly how many instruments do you think are affected? Sounds like it could be a lot of them.
