I only sometimes play with the soundtrack.

This poll will be helpful to me, thanks for your input.

 It tends to depend on whether I’m playing or testing. If I’m testing stuff I’ve written, I leave it off — it tends to distract me. I do like to have it on when I’m actually playing and actually remember to turn it on, though.
 Vaguely related-ish and probably completely irrelevant to the poll, I stuck the whole soundtrack into my music library and a few tunes here and there made it on my MP3 player.

I usually have it on, but sometimes I turn it off in case other people could get disturbed by it.

Yes. On the whole it's quite good and fits very well. It sometimes gets a bit repetitive with constant battle music starting, but it's not that irritating. The worst part of the soundtrack is how it highlights how bad some of the other sound effects are that haven't been updated since .99 or so.

I tend to play (and record) with the soundtrack off. it sounds amazing, but I dont want to get into any legal trouble. That, and it makes it easier to edit videos without worrying about butchering the music.

I only turn it on in early game. Later, with life and death fights everywhere, i turn it off. Less strain. Less distraction.

Legal trouble? You arent getting into legal trouble for turning on the soundtrack in the same way as you arent getting into legal trouble for recording and posting the video (on youtube?) in the first place. I dont turn the soundtrack off while recording Skyrim or any other game. And i have never gotten into any trouble (yet!).

I wish that the soundtracks had better spacing, and the battle music had stricter triggers, like player takes 10% shield damage (often it starts without you haven taken any damage when you can 1 hit an enemy ship, which is annoying since it resets the rest of the soundtracks, too often).

Actually, it may prevent monetization. Unless George bought all the rights or the music was put under a some sort of copyleft license the composer would theoretically be entitled to license fees if anyone other than George, who has already licensed it, makes money off of it. Everything else George definitely owns and he's around to ask permission of. Except mods. Mods are a gray area.
