Subject: MP3 Licensing change

MP3 Licensing change

I have a question - I browsed the archives but didn't see anything,
perhaps i'm a little blind today.

With the recent reversal of licensing for MP3 decoders, what
is the impact on RockBox?

Will there be an issue, or does the fact that the DSP does
the majority of the work cover any legal tangles?

If there is a perceived issue, will this spearhead any work
on OGG support, even though such a task might be extremely
cumbersome?


Thanks!

(a grateful user who can't wait to get home and upgrade to 1.3)
