Philharmonia Orchestra

Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license, not suitable for the FreePats project. In addition, their web site lists an additional condition: they must not be sold or made available 'as is' (i.e. as samples or as a sampler instrument). This condition alone makes the sample library non-free as imposes restrictions on distribution of the samples, and apparently it also forbids to create independent sample libraries with them, which is what the FreePats project wants to do.

Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra

It is licensed under Creative Commons Sampling Plus 1.0 license, which is not a free license. Moreover, it uses samples from other sources like Philharmonia Orchestra, which are incompatible with the Sampling Plus license, so the legal status of the whole library is uncertain.
