Mp3-decoders also patented?

What's this I hear about MP3-decoding (as opposed to encoding) being
patented and Fraunhofer only allowing non-commercial use, requiring a
fee otherwise? (I thought this was the reason why the original mpg123
only allowed non-commercial use.)

Am I misinformed about this? If not, all mp3-decoders in Debian main
are misplaced.
