> AFAIK g729 patent is expiring sometime in 2019-2020. 

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G.729

G.729 includes patents from several companies and is licensed by Sipro Lab Telecom. Sipro Lab Telecom is the authorized Intellectual Property Licensing Administrator for G.729 technology and patent pool.[3][4][5][6]

As of January 1, 2017 the patent terms of most Licensed Patents under the G.729 Consortium have expired, the remaining unexpired patents are usable on a royalty-free basis.[7] Thus, G.729 can be used free-of-charge.
