Why do i feel like im cheating


Does anybody fell the same way.

Basically i have a really good basis for a trance track on the go and i have created everything from scratch apart from my hats. Im using a Kick from the battery 3 vst and used a number of other samples for my drums which i have arranged ok  but i have downloaded some hat loops from a website which i am playing over my drums.  it sounds a million times better because of it but i feel guilty not creating my own hat loops.  I struggle when it comes to creating my own loops.  Am i cheating. Are there any royalty issues i need to be aware of.
