In a trailer? yeah they probably are. Sony pull the track from the trailer or insist Exato pay for the rights they make nothing or a few bucks and a load of bad PR. If for some reason the trailer goes viral Sony will love the royalties from the increased album sales.
It's a no brainier as far for sony as I can see - but yeah putting it unlicensed into the full game with a full track would undoubtedly lead to court.
