This is about win32-codecs, not MP3 playback.

I'd still love to know how they have MP3 covered in Germany though.

win32-codecs contains several Windows codecs (literally .dll files) ripped straight out of Windows Media Player, QuickTime etc.

They aren't really necessary. There is software around that will play these files without touching Windows components. It doesn't explain why some people seem to be getting excessively paranoid about licensing things. All people are doing is accessing their own files here. I don't see Open Office needing a license from Microsoft, nor should one be necessary.
