It is free in the sense of the copyright law.
But patent law is a different matter.

In Europe software patents should be no issue, but that's not true

It's true, that any non-trivial software includes patented ideas. 
But especially the MP3 patents are aggressively enforced.

And have especially an eye on what they do *not* tell! :-(
