Patent Issues with mbelib
While DSD was intended to be patent-free, mbelib describes functions that may be covered by one or more U.S. patents owned by DVSI Inc. The source code itself should not be infringing as it merely describes possible methods of implementation. Compiling or using mbelib may infringe on patents rights and/or require licensing. It is unknown if DVSI will sell licenses for software that uses mbelib. If you do not have a license and are in a jurisdiction protected by the DVSI patents you should not compile or use this source code.

If the mbelib is not used, the rest of the code might be worth study by a developer. P25 Phase 2 does use an AMBE chip (newer than the one D-STAR uses -- We are studying using the newest 3000 series chip in our daughter card). Phase 1 uses the incompatible IMBE vocoder.
