1. write? ok, as long as you don't share it. :)
2. use? probably not, but no one will probably care.
Clarifcation: you can get free/legal mp3 decoding, provided it's
properly licensed and paid for, e.g.
3. (you missed) (re)distributing said mp3 encoder/decoder, illegal,
to your "Fact" above.
Addendum: Illegal for a US-based company/group, like Fedora, without
paying licensing fees.
