in the course of development of the MPEG-4 Audio standard ISO-14496-1, 2 and 3.
This software module is an implementation of a part of one or more MPEG-4 Audio
tools as specified by the MPEG-4 Audio standard. ISO/IEC gives users of the
MPEG-4 Audio standards free licence to this software module or modifications
thereof for use in hardware or software products claiming conformance to the
MPEG-4 Audio standards. Those intending to use this software module in hardware
or software products are advised that this use may infringe existing patents.
The original developers of this software of this module and their company,
the subsequent editors and their companies, and ISO/EIC have no liability for
use of this software module or modifications thereof in an implementation.
Copyright is not released for non MPEG-4 Audio conforming products. The
original developer retains full right to use this code for his/her own purpose,
assign or donate the code to a third party and to inhibit third party from
using the code for non MPEG-4 Audio conforming products. This copyright notice
must be included in all copies of derivative works. (...)

If I interpret it correctly, it's not prohibited per se to use the code in MPEG-4 Audio standard compliant software. The original developer may however opt to inhibit XBMC from using the code. Still, silence to a use request is not a prohibition in this sense, IMHO. Rather the wording would support my previous opionion that it may be used until forbidden.

I don't claim to be an expert in licensing issues, so an expert opinion of ISO code in GPL would be helpful.

I would also like to direct your attention to https://ffmpeg.org/legal.html - especially the last section "Patent Mini-FAQ / MPEG-4" where they take a similar stance as I have suggested.
