[email@example.com: Bug#65794: freeamp must go to non-free]
Opinions? I thought that it had been decided that mp3 decoders were ok for
main... I've maintained an mp3 player since I became a maintainer two years
ago, first with emusic, now with freeamp...
Please Cc me on replies, I am not on -legal.

freeamp is a MP3 decoder. Decoding of MP3s is patented.
says about license fees for MP3 decoders:
mp3 Software Decoders/Players distributed free-of-charge via the Internet
for personal use of end-users
No license fee is expected for desktop software mp3 decoders/players
that are distributed free-of-charge via the Internet for personal use
[you have to pay license fees in all other cases]
This seems to conflict with the DFSG. freeamp must go to non-free
