The file header says:

 * mpeg audio layer 2 tables. Most of them come from the mpeg audio
 * specification.

Which specification is that?  All references to mpegaudiotab.h I found
with Google point back to FFmpeg or programs derived from FFmpeg.

If you look at the file you'll see that it's just a bunch of constants
and tables.  Since we're operating under the assumption that these are
not copyrightable I suggest we remove the silly line about its license.
In any case, it already claims to be (c) Fabrice ...
