+Software License for The Fraunhofer FDK AAC Codec Library for Android
+© Copyright 1995 - 2012 Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V.
+ All rights reserved.
+The Fraunhofer FDK AAC Codec Library for Android ("FDK AAC Codec") is software that implements
+the MPEG Advanced Audio Coding ("AAC") encoding and decoding scheme for digital audio.
+This FDK AAC Codec software is intended to be used on a wide variety of Android devices.
+AAC's HE-AAC and HE-AAC v2 versions are regarded as today's most efficient general perceptual
+audio codecs. AAC-ELD is considered the best-performing full-bandwidth communications codec by
+independent studies and is widely deployed. AAC has been standardized by ISO and IEC as part
+of the MPEG specifications.
+Patent licenses for necessary patent claims for the FDK AAC Codec (including those of Fraunhofer)
+may be obtained through Via Licensing ( or through the respective patent owners
+individually for the purpose of encoding or decoding bit streams in products that are compliant with
+the ISO/IEC MPEG audio standards. Please note that most manufacturers of Android devices already license
+these patent claims through Via Licensing or directly from the patent owners, and therefore FDK AAC Codec
+software may already be covered under those patent licenses when it is used for those licensed purposes only.
+Commercially-licensed AAC software libraries, including floating-point versions with enhanced sound quality,
+are also available from Fraunhofer. Users are encouraged to check the Fraunhofer website for additional
+applications information and documentation.
+Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification, are permitted without
+payment of copyright license fees provided that you satisfy the following conditions:
+You must retain the complete text of this software license in redistributions of the FDK AAC Codec or
+your modifications thereto in source code form.
+You must retain the complete text of this software license in the documentation and/or other materials
+provided with redistributions of the FDK AAC Codec or your modifications thereto in binary form.
+You must make available free of charge copies of the complete source code of the FDK AAC Codec and your
+modifications thereto to recipients of copies in binary form.
+The name of Fraunhofer may not be used to endorse or promote products derived from this library without
+prior written permission.
+You may not charge copyright license fees for anyone to use, copy or distribute the FDK AAC Codec
+software or your modifications thereto.
+Your modified versions of the FDK AAC Codec must carry prominent notices stating that you changed the software
+and the date of any change. For modified versions of the FDK AAC Codec, the term
+"Fraunhofer FDK AAC Codec Library for Android" must be replaced by the term
+"Third-Party Modified Version of the Fraunhofer FDK AAC Codec Library for Android."
