    Just for a logical explanation - if you buy Logic from the App Store, you have bought the right to use the software in whatever way you want, but it obviously doesn't belong to you because you didn't create it, so you can't use parts of the program in a way that you're building it into your own stuff and passing it off as your own software.


    You have bought the use of the program, so you can download it again, if you need to - just make sure you've removed previous versions - use a good uninstall utility if you don't know where to look for what needs to be deleted.
