Straighten Me Out Here...

Recommended Posts

I''ve been reading up on this for a while, and I just want to make this clear... Even if I write all the code myself to do it (ie I don''t use a pre-created library but rather come up with my own from research and whatnot), I''d still be infringing on some laws and violating patents if I used MP3 music in my game without paying anybody? I''m assuming that''s true, considering how difficult it is finding information for that library .

Read the info at mp3licensing.com.

Excerpt:

Do I need a license to use mp3/mp3PRO in games?

Yes. Games using mp3/mp3PRO encoded content are licensed on a per-title basis.

However, No license fees are due if less than 5 000 copies of a particular game title are distributed.
