While it is currently the case that the patent holders on mp3
encode/decode technology have declined to pursue licensing fees from free
and open-source encode/decode software, this may not always be so.
It is a bit frightening to see someone base an activity around bits that
might suddenly be subject to fees/IP claims. Nervous, is me...
How, too, does this interact with the export capabilities of OLPC, as
something hosted on redhat's servers? Again - something to think about.
