Hi Guillaume, sorry about the long delay in my reply.

I just tried opening the file using mplayer, and it plays fine.  It seems 
to have no ID3 tags according to the 'id3v2' program.

liblicense does properly set the ID3 WCOP tag in this file.  Curiously, 
eyeD3 thinks that your MP3 has duration 0 minutes, 0 seconds, whereas 
mplayer plays it just fine.

I think that you should email a link to the MP3 file to Travis Shirk 
<travis at pobox.com>, since he is the author of eyeD3, and ask him if eyeD3 
can be fixed to work with your file.  It'd be nice to fix that.

But it's not strictly necessary - liblicense does work fine with your MP3, 
and in general I (now) recommend using it over cli_tools.
