[asterisk-users] G729 Licensing Revisited - I'm Sorry!

For 23 channels I recommend a hardware transcoding card.   

We use http://www.sangoma.com/products/d100-30-400-sessions/   I think Digium also has a transcoding card also.

I know at least half a dozen people who do this so that they can more effectively balance their licence commitment over a number of services, rather than locking licences down to MAC addresses of specific NICs in specific servers. But I'm based in the EU where (as others have said) patentability laws are quite different.

If you're worried about whether it's legal in your jurisdiction, you really should speak to a qualified legal professional to allay your concerns. This list has such an international audience that what's perfectly acceptable in one jurisdiction might land you in hot water in another.
