It's under the Artistic License version 1.0. The FSF says "we cannot say that this is a free software license because it is too vague; some passages are too clever for their own good, and their meaning is not clear. We urge you to avoid using it, except as part of the disjunctive license of Perl."

In addition to the questionable licensing, it has been removed from Debian Squeeze because the program isn't maintained anymore. Perhaps we should consider removing it from deltah & metad?

Package mp32ogg falls under the Artistic License, which is non-free.
