subscribing ubuntu archive administrators:

could you please review the legal status of the faac package?

In the meantime I've found this statement on the upstream homepage:

FAAC is based on the original ISO MPEG reference code. The changes to this code are licensed under the LGPL license. The original license is not compatible with the LGPL, please be aware of this when using FAAC. The original license text can be found in the README file included in the download package.
